Earlier this month the City of Prince George opened a brand new greenspace to the public – Nechako Riverside Park. As the latest addition to Prince George this riverfront space, just located on the north side of the Nechako River and Foothills Boulevard, offers locals and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Nechako River just outside the city centre.
Through careful planning, the park provides accessible and easy walking paths for tiny feet and wheelchairs alike. With a gradual five percent grade down to the water, taking gear or even a kayak will be easy, as the wide gravel path casually zig-zags its way to the riverside from the upper parking lot.
From the bottom of the bank, many scattered benches and picnic tables are available to choose from, and the tables have been specifically developed to cater to wheelchairs and mobility aids. From the left, a large open field has been cleared to allow for fun family activities such as frisbee and bocce ball, while to the right and past the bridge, the walking trails have been untouched and left forested for exploration. For the more adventurous a canoe launch has been developed on the riverbank, providing the perfect starting or finishing spot for a classic float down the Nechako River.
