"I'm here to welcome visitors to the City of Prince George and encourage them to stop awhile to explore our attractions and amenities."
I stand at 27 feet tall and symbolize the importance of the forestry industry to our city. I am considered a timeless and important landmark to both locals and tourists and I was recognized nationally on a Canada Post stamp in 2009.
Start off by getting your picture taken with me at the junction of Highway 97 & 16. Take some time to read more about me on the sign near my feet. Visit the Exploration Place to view more Mr. PG artifacts and to learn more about my home city. Buy a replica of me at the Prince George Visitor Centre in the Via Rail building on First Avenue.
Did you know that 2015 was a HUGE year for Prince George? Our City turned 100, UNBC turned 25 and of course we hosted the Canada Winter Games!
