Quesnel provides an amazing setting for hiking and camping. Inviting city gardens transform urban areas into perfect picnic spots, and exciting agricultural tours let visitors see and taste the very freshest local farmers have to offer.
Wilma Hanson Memorial Park: Is located in West Quesnel on Lewis Drive. It is named in honour of the late Wilma Hanson. The park is a perfect location for picnics under mature, shady Cottonwood trees.
West Fraser Timber Park: Is the newest and largest of Quesnel's city parks. The park houses four softball diamonds, one baseball diamond, a playground, a lawn bowling facility, the Nature education Centre, four tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and a system of hiking trails.
The Civic Plaza: At the east end of Barlow Avenue, offers a wonderful open space and a grand entrance to the west side of LeBourdais Park. A roundabout with a stunning circular flower garden in the middle doubles as a drop off point for arena functions.
