Parks & Playgrounds
Fort St. John offers lots of parks to play and picnic in! From the centrally located Centennial Park that is a gathering place for the whole community; to Kin Park - home to free exercise equipment, bike jumps, and ball diamonds; to Pickell Park that has a small playground, there are many options to take advantage of.
Centennial Park is the hub for special events; from Canada Day, Santa Parade and High on Ice Winter Festival and home to the newly renovated Rotary Spray Park. It is located next to the North Peace Leisure Pool in the heart of downtown.
In 2017, the City conducted a Centennial Park Master Plan to redevelop the park and introduce new amenities like an outdoor breeze-way stage, picnic shelter, washrooms, an accessible playground and a par-cor playground. Construction started Fall 2018 and is expected to be complete by 2020.
