Things to Do

Those with all kinds of interests are drawn to Grand Forks.
Its mining and railway history, Doukhobor heritage and location in the Monashee Mountains at the junction of two rivers offer scope for a wide range of activities. The rivers, grasslands, mountains, rail trails and provincial parks provide a backdrop for golf, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, tubing, canoeing and kayaking, fishing and camping.
Driving routes take in historic sites, farms and orchards while downtown walking tours showcase the arts and more heritage sites.
History & the Arts
History and the arts are central to the Grand Forks experience with the heritage courthouse (1912) at its hub. One stop covers heritage exhibits, Grand Forks' very worthwhile art gallery and a gift shop. The Grand Forks Visitor Centre is also located in this building. Stop by for maps of the downtown Historical Walking Tour and Art Walks tour along with brochures on the Mountainview Doukhobor Village, Doukhobor Mill and Fructova Heritage Centre.
