Your visit in Dawson Creek would not be
complete without a visit to the Walter
Wright Pioneer Village
, located in the Mile
Zero Park (Mile 1 Alaska Highway). A stroll
along the wooden plank sidewalks with the
free walking tour brochure will transport
you to a time when our community was on
the edge of the frontier.
Throughout Pioneer Village, eleven
spectacular themed gardens (named
Gardens North) and a memorial rose garden
offer exquisite arrays of flowers, trees and
shrubs that will please your senses.
Get some exercise and take a dip in our
brand new aquatic centre which features a
25m 8-lane pool, a hot tub, sauna, steam
room, leisure pool and a 150-foot water
slide. For some fresh air, stroll the
Dawson Walking Trail which winds through
the city on the banks of the creek.
Stroll for an hour and get to know Dawson
Creek with a free self-guided historic
walking tour brochure. Available at the
Visitor Centre or Alaska Highway House,
the publication is full of original photos
and historic lore that narrates Dawson
Creek's unique past.
