About This Park

Hudson’s Bay Wetland Park is a nature trail with various viewpoints in Prince George. While on the trails one could see the many habitats of muskrats, beavers, fish, and ducks. This location is also popular for bird watching. The wetland can be accessed either by heading to the Hudson’s Bay Wetland Nature Park on Queensway Street, or by parking at The Exploration Place and heading south to a footbridge. The audit was done from Oak Street to Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park. This park is being developed with the PG Naturalists club so there is more information on their website too. The long term plan is for the trail to go all around the slough. This is a park to watch as they have stated they want everything about the park and trail to be as universally designed and as accessible as possible.

Trails

The section of trail from Oak Street to Queensway is steep, hilly and unpaved and can also be muddy at times due to trail being of packed dirt and gravel. There is a crosswalk on Queensway to get from the Oak Street side of the park to the Queensway and Lhiedli T'enneh side. From Queensway to Lhiedli T'enneh is paved paths approximately 2.5 to 3 meters wide with a packed gravel side path to the observation deck.
