Railway Bridge

Recommended by VEERKAMAL SINGH

Designed by a French engineer, a half-mile-long Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTPR) bridge is the longest bridge in BC.

It was completed in 1914. It’s an expensive city and industry scene, ever-changing with the season, fluctuating river levels and ice with the grassy, treed island midstream.

It is a popular place for locals to hang out. It offers great river and cottonwood park views.

Ancient forest/Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park

Only inland temperate rainforest in the world

Magnificent big tree. It is a wonderful spot about an hour east of Prince George. On May 19th, 2016, the park was established to protect the North American inland temperate rainforest, the only inland temperate rainforest in the world.

Prince George Cutbanks

Recommended by CRAIG BUDSKIN

Prince George has its notoriously steep Cutbanks. They are more than just a pre or post-work cardio blast; they are an icon in Prince George.

Climbing up the Cutbanks has become more of a social activity rather than a solo achievement. Do not forget to take a flight on the swing installed by someone unknown at the hill.

Thousands of years ago, as glacial ice sheets melted and formed the Nechako and Fraser Rivers, the steep sandy slopes, now known as The Cutbanks, were formed. The Cutbanks were the site of North America’s only sand race. The “Sandblast” was first held in 1972 and attracted participants from all over the world, including Canadian Ski Champions. It was discontinued in 2004.

Connaught Hill Park

Recommended by VEERKAMAL SINGH

Located on the top of a panoramic hill in downtown Prince George. The beautifully landscaped park provides 360-degree views of the city and the Fraser River. It’s one of the only high points of land in the bowl area.

Lheidli’ T’enneh Memorial Park/Fort George Park

Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park is a wonderment. It is one of the oldest parks in Prince George, formerly known as Fort George Park.

It was renamed in 2015 to recognize the Lheidli T’enneh village, the indigenous community that once lived here. This park has a walking path that runs alongside the mighty Fraser River.

The park inhabits a water park for kids and adults, a large picnic shelter to celebrate various events, two playgrounds, a beach volleyball court, a tennis court, a bandshell, and the Exploration Place Museum at one end.

The best time to visit the park is generally summer, but the fall brings out the best vegetation colour.

Rock Quarry

Recommended by CRAIG BUDSKIN

Beautiful swimming spot. It is a short walk leading to a beautiful swimming hole known as “Rock quarry.” The water is magnificent. It’s so clean and so blue.

It used to be a mine, but they hit the water. Upon returning to work the next day, everything had flooded, and we now have what is known as the Rock Quarry.
