Explore Prince George's Parks and Trails
Eighty-nine per cent of Prince George residents live within 400 metres of a park or open green space. The City of Prince George has been working to create even more public green spaces, improve existing parks and trails, and increase access to the Fraser and Nechako Rivers.
Here's a glimpse of a few parks projects the City has been working on in 2018.
Prince George features more than 120 parks and green spaces covering over 19 square kilometres with a total area equivalent to five of Vancouver's Stanley parks. Visit one of 13 nature parks or take in a panoramic view of the downtown core from atop Connaught Hill. Pet-friendly parks are also available with on-leash and off-leash areas.
Explore a parks system that has close to 100 sports fields and courts for baseball, soccer, tennis, basketball, and more. Carrie Jane Gray Park, PG's preeminent multi-purpose athletic space, features ball diamonds, track and field at Masich Place Stadium, a bicycle motocross (BMX) at the on-site dirt track, and more. Also available for public use are numerous ball diamonds, soccer fields, skate and bike parks, and tennis and basketball courts scattered across the City.
Discover the City on foot or bicycle - and even on skis during snowy days - by traveling along more than 100km of trails. Built across different terrain types with varying levels of difficulty and distance, trails are enjoyed by visitors of all ages and many are accessible for all residents. In addition, a number of trails - like the Centennial and Heritage River Trails - connect various parks and local amenities.
