Welcome to Forests For The World - a 106 hectare demonstration forest with 15 km of nature trails. To commemorate the City of Prince George's 70th Anniversary and to celebrate the City's participation in Expo 86, Forests For The World was born. The undulating topography and elevated high point of land (at approximately 880m) of this nature park provides scenic views of the Prince George area. Many trails are multi-use, interpretive routes.
This Prince George gem has something for everyone, including a fishing dock, a traditional Aboriginal pit house, rustic trails, and group picnic shelters.
