About This Park

Forests for the World is a wilderness park embedded in the city of Prince George. With nearly 18 km of trails packed into about 1.5 square kilometres, it offers everything from a flat, short stroll to Shane Lake, where you can enjoy a picnic or a bit of fishing from its two docks, to a hilly challenge up and down the park’s western ridges. Along with offering a variety of types of trails, it is also a great place for bird watching and checking out the wild flowers.

Park Facilities & Accessibility Features

Access Route

Getting from the parking lot to the trail head or the accessible outhouse currently poses a level of difficulty for anyone who has a visual impairment or uses a mobility device. This is due to large rocks at one entrance and a gate with narrow pedestrian bypass at the other entrance. There is a cluster of large rocks that are 700 mm to 840 mm apart across the main entrance from the parking lot. A person who uses wheelchair in particular must zig zag through the rocks and people who use larger mobility devices such as power wheelchairs might not make some of the tighter turns. The alternative entrances were also narrow, steep and muddy on wet days. Download Full Accessibility Audit

Washrooms

There is a pit toilet located near the the parking lot and trail head. It generally meets accessibility standards but could use ongoing maintenance to repair erosion at the door. These lips develop over time and must be filled and packed for maximum accessibility. Door handles are excellent, however the locking bolt is small and stiff which could be difficult to operate with a closed fist. Download Full Accessibility Audit
