Share your story on our Facebook group!

The Prince George Hospice Palliative Care Society is excited to announce the 4th Annual Colour Walk fundraiser. This year we are challenging the community to walk 100K in the month of May leading up to our grand celebration event on Sunday, May 29th!

Join us on social media for fun games like I spy and a sidewalk chalk drawing competitions with chances to win fun prizes.

This year the funds raised by the Colour Walk will go to revitalizing the garden’s at the Rotary Hospice House to bring some more colour to our house and our guests.

Team Donation Grand Prize
The team that gathers the most donations will win a Family Staycation Package at the Prestige Hotel, a free night stay in the family suite with $100 gift card redeemable at all food outlets (including Cimo) on site.

Featured Park of the Week

ORANGE WEEK
Cottonwood (May 23rd – 29th)

Cottonwood Island Nature Park has 2.2 kilometers of relatively flat trails. A local favourite, visitors will enjoy the many winding trails along the river and close-up views of the historical CN Rail Bridge that was built in 1914. To access the park, you can park your vehicle in the lot next to the Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum, or get into the park by following the Heritage River Trail or the Centennial Trail.

Keep your eyes peeled for the many unique carvings that are scattered across the cottonwood trees throughout the park. These carvings were done by local resident Elmer Gunderson, who’s work can also be purchased in the Prince George Visitor Centre.

Other amenities at the park include washrooms, a picnic shelters, benches and picnic tables, a canoe launch, and a paved boat launch. Due to the relatively flat trails, a good portion of this park is accessible with a wheelchair, scooter, or stroller.
