About This Park

Connaught Hill Park in Prince George, is a community park situated on the top of a hill in the centre of the community. The beautifully landscaped park provides 360 degree views of the community and of the Fraser River. This is a park with spectacular views of Prince George and with well groomed lawns and flower beds.

There are lots of tables and benches scattered through the park. Ideally a few should be connected via a dedicated accessible pedestrian path.

Park Facilities & Accessibility Features

Access Route

Pedestrians who don't want to walk on the lush grass must share the road after stepping off the 100 mm curb. Grass is a challenging surface for wheels and an unmarked, uneven grass route is hard to discern for people with low vision. The pedestrian path from Queensway to the top does not appear to be maintained and it only goes as far as the road. The staircase from 15th was recently maintained however pedestrians wind up on the road the farther into the park they go. Ideally there should be a packed level path connecting the parking lot with the outhouses, viewpoints, tables and benches. Download Full Accessibility Audit
