Fort Nelson, Attractions
I would just like to let everyone know about our fabulous new facility up north in Fort Nelson. We are located on the north end of town just off Highway 97 / Alaska Highway / Alcan. Walking distance from Triple G Hideaway RV campground, the Fort Nelson Heritage Museum as well as the Art Fraser Memorial park.
Our new location is very big, all windows along the front of the building letting in that summer sun. There is parking right out front as well as a picnic table and garbage can.
Inside we have public washrooms, free WiFi access (only from inside the centre), computers are available or bring in your own and relax in the seating areas, complimentary water & coffee, a kids colouring area, brochures/maps, northern rockies attire, merchandise, local art and of course the smiling faces of our counsellors.
This year's staff are four local young adults. Lee, Laurisha, Kersten and myself are all home for the summer from post secondary. We love meeting new people and providing what we can about our area and more. We are still getting stock and more brochures in from other regions but we are trained up and full of as much helpful information as possible.
Come on down to see us! We will be here until mid-september, seven days a week, 7AM to 8PM! Phone: 250-774-6400 E-mail: email@example.com
