100th Anniversary Gift to Enhance City Parks and Trails

Prince George, BC - In honour of the 100th Anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Prince George (March 6, 2015), Husky Energy is providing the city with a new interpretive sign program that will enhance Prince George’s parks and trails system.

The 100th Anniversary Trail Interpretive Program will connect 35 kilometers of existing trails and walkways that encircle Prince George’s bowl area. The signs will be written in both English and Dakelh, the Lheidli T’enneh language.

The project will enrich the experience of nature lovers, fitness enthusiasts, and general recreation users of all ages, and extend and enhance the experience of residents and visitors who use the system an estimated 700,000 times per year.

“I would like to thank Husky Energy for providing this donation at such a significant time in the history of our great city,” says Mayor Lyn Hall of Prince George. “This is the gift of a true community partner as it both teaches residents about the natural and historical value of the area, while encouraging active living.”

Four large interpretive kiosks will be placed at Moore’s Meadow, Cottonwood Island Park, Fort George Park, and at the University trail loop. These kiosks will be supplemented by 30 smaller interpretive signs throughout the system as well as distance markers.

The interpretive signs will include natural and historical themes provided by the Prince George Heritage Commission and the Prince George Naturalists Club.
