We polled a few Prince George experts and put together a few ideas to help you beat the boredom, de-stress and disconnect in our beautiful outdoors, all while maintaining proper social distancing.
Join The Heart Hunt - #heartsofpg
Created by local Bailey Grose to encourage our community to come together, get outside and do something fun. To participate, simply put a heart in your window - colour them, paint them, print them and more! Then go outside, walk around and see how many you can find in your neighbourhood or across Prince George. A perfect activity for kids (and adults) of any age!

Take A Walk
Prince George has over 120 parks of all shapes and sizes within city limits. Grab your walking shoes and visit trails like Ferguson Lake, Wilson Park, Forest for the World or the popular Cottonwood Island Nature Park.
You can access a full list of our city trails here: City Parks & Trails
This is a tough time for our local shops and restaurants. While many are closing their storefronts and dining rooms to the public, there are other ways you can still support them. Order food for take-out/delivery, buy gift cards for future use or order gifts and other local wares online.
The Prince George Chamber of Commerce has created a round-up of local businesses who are remaining open and adjusting their operating procedures during these times.
You can check out the list here: What's Open In Prince George
Take A Virtual Class
Our furry friends still need to stretch and run, so try visiting some of Prince George’s designated dog parks to get some fresh air for both you and your dog. With four parks to choose from, owners can decide between two fenced-in parks (Duchess Park and Corporal Darren Fitzpatrick Bravery Park) and the local favourites Moore’s Meadow and Ginter’s Field.
Cozy Up With Your Family For Game Night
Northern Lights Estate Winery, Blissful Bubbles Boutique, Rocky Mt. Chocolate and Wonderland Games have all collaborated together to bring folks some much-needed relaxation. Featuring a variety of care packages full of wine, chocolate, bath treats and of course games to keep you entertained as you self isolate.
