The view from Connaught Hill in downtown Prince George is great! A friend and myself grabbed a coffee and went up onto the hill to enjoy some conversation with a view. The gardens as you crest the hill are beautiful, and the rest of the park is equally as nicely groomed. We wandered slowly around the perimeter of the park to take in the 360-degree view. This lets you take in the feature of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers meeting, the whole downtown area, and other nearby neighborhoods as well.
My favourite Connaught Hill fun fact: in the early 1900s, PG had one of the world's only 2 illuminated olympic sized ski jumps...and jumpers landed right where the art gallery now stands.
There are many nice parks from which to get an overhead view of PG, but Connaught Hill's gardens and panoramic views make it the best in town!
