Prince George, Parks
A recent venture north of Prince George led to a discovery of a well hidden gem and opportunity- the opportunity to see vegetation and plants from all of Canada's provinces and territories at Good Sir Nature Park, operated by Jim Good.
Jim Good was a forest ranger many, many years ago whose hobby is Canadian plants and wildlife and the photography of them. Over the years, Mr. Good has developed his 160 acres of land into a private park that allow for locals and tourists to explore the trees, plants and vegetation of Canada. In addition to exploring the gardens he has (i.e. the Botanical Garden's, the Arctic garden, etc), Mr. Good provides camp sites with pre-cut firewood, use of his cabin and a spot for a RV; all of this is just based on donations provided by guests.
Hopefully, if you are lucky, you will meet up with Mr. Good who provides stories and walking tours throughout his propery, open up his interpretive centre for you and who will welcome you with open arms.
Good Sir Nature Park is a park for the whole family to enjoy!
