About This Park

Kristian Winther Regional Park is located on the south shore of the Salmon River, 30 kilometres north of Prince George. The park is 70 acres in size and has a short trail that travels along the Salmon River and back through some new growth forest. The park features two acres of lawn for you to enjoy a game, a group gathering (park use permit required) or just spend some time with family.

Facilities at the park include a picnic shelter, picnic tables, fire pits and toilets.
Chris Winther, founded the park as a living memorial to his son, Kristian.

This is a rustic picnic site beside the river (no official or deliberate water access) with grassy trails through the bush with 50% of the trail having a moderate slope running slope of 3 degrees and 50% with a flat & gentle running slope of 1 – 2 degrees.

Access Route

From parking lot. The path from the parking lot is wide but has lots of rocks about 30 to 50 mm in diameter and then opens to just grass at the picnic site. To Pit Toilet - The access route to this outhouse is poor and needs to be connected with the main access route. The gradient exceeds 3 degrees which makes access difficult.

Trails

This site would benefit from trail surface improvement as rocks and grass are not accessible for wheelchairs and are problematic for people with low/no vision. A packed level path connecting the parking lot, outhouses, picnic shelter and trails would increase the accessibility. Download Full Accessibility Audit

Water Access

There is no accessible pathway to the river. Download Full Accessibility Audit

Additional Information

The path the parking lot to the picnic site is river rock (about 30 to 50 mm) and grass. The outhouses are off that path. There is no sign to point them out, so if you are not actively looking for them you will walk right past. They are more visible on the return trip. A direction sign would help. The grab bars need to be installed.
