Connaught Hill Park is a community park situated on the top of a hill in the centre of the community of Prince George BC, Canada. The beautifully landscaped park provides 360 degree views of the community and of Fraser River.
Depending on your perch in the park you see various parts of the community. From the west you can see Parkwood Place (Shopping Mall). Looking east are the Fraser River and the local pulp mill. When you are on the north end of the park you can see Downtown Prince George, Sand Hill and the Railway. From the south you can see residential homes and forest.
For many people the park is a great place to visit to relax, read, picnic and to enjoy views of the city. During lunch time many of the locals escape to the park to eat and enjoy the outdoors. The park is a local gathering place for many during the months of April to October. Other months the park is closed and visited by the weather only.
How to get there:
From Highway 16 east, just before the YellowHead Bridge on the east side of town, is the corner of Queensway Street and the Highway. Turn onto Queensway Street and drive. Soon after, take a right onto Connaught Hill Drive and follow the signs to the park. It is a bit of a tricky entrance to find. If you run into 17th Avenue you have driven too far.
