Prince George, Parks
It is finally June and the flowers are blooming and sun is shining. My friend and I thought it would be an opportune time to have a picnic on Connaught Hill in Prince George. They have a beautfifully planted garden and a few picnic tables to sit on to have lunch.
I went and did a little bit of research on Connaught Hill and found out a few things. It is on such a tall hill and the hill is actually left over from the ice age! In the early 1900's there was a ski jump built from the top of the hill and the landing pad is where City Hall is located now! It was one of only 2 ski jumps of that size in the world! A windstorm blew over the ski jump, but it definitely worth seeing some of the history of Prince George on a sunny afternoon for a picnic!
