About This Park

Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park (previously called Fort George Park) is located in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada and is one of the more popular community park destinations for families, groups and sightseers in the community of Prince George, BC, Canada. It is the city’s largest park covering over 65 acres of well maintained lawns dissected by pathways leading to viewing benches looking out over the Fraser River, flower gardens, a First Nation cemetery and a children’s playground and water park.

Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park includes many amenities onsite – most connected by a paved pathway. The park includes picnic tables in the sun and shade, sitting benches, a large picnic shelter, washrooms, monuments, a volleyball court, tennis courts, a playground and a band shelter. The shelter and the large open grass lawns provide the means to hold large events in the park.

This is one of the oldest parks in Prince George. It is important to note that not all parts of the park are seamlessly connected with accessible routes.

Washrooms

There are a number of public washrooms on the site. Washroom #1 beside baseball diamond. There is a 40 mm lip to get over before getting into the washroom and it is only available during ball games and special events. The access route to #1 is grass, so difficult to get to. Washroom #2 by the Water Park This is the washroom that services the water park and playground. It is not accessible. The access route needs to be flush with the washroom floor for true accessibility. The large stalls are acceptable if they are properly outfitted with hardware and grab bars that meet the standards. Washroom #3 at 17th Ave. This is a good accessible washroom in the middle of lush lawn. An accessible path (paved) is planned for the summer of 2017. Once you reach it this is a vast improvement over the older washroom buildings. The only designated accessible signage are on the park side of the building. Extra signs on the street side and some directional signs elsewhere are needed. Download Full Accessibility Audit
