Dawson Creek, Attractions

We take our seasons seriously here in Dawson Creek. Summer is Summer, Fall is Fall, Winter is Winter and here comes Spring!We love spring!
It is so obvious here. We can almost feel the earth warm up. We hope for a gradual melt so that the earth absorbs as much moisture as it can for the upcoming yearly crops.
I keep a journal of the heralds of spring. The first Canada Geese, the first robins, pussy willows, the first bright green blades of grass and of course the first green leaves and the first tractor working up a field for planting.
If you come to Dawson Creek in the spring months, you will see us cleaning up the debris from winter, sweeping our streets and planting flowers in our beautiful city baskets. And you'll see a lot of smiles.
I love the way the city shakes off our winter coat. Friends who visit often comment on what an attractive place this is. Even as a resident, I appreciate how clean and welcoming it is.
I never get tired of the huge flocks of geese flying overhead, or the newborn animals kicking up their heels in the fields. Spring has sprung in the Peace River Country.
