Outdoor Activities

Densely populated with mature cottonwood trees that lend the park its name, the Cottonwood Island Nature Park is located at the converging point of the Nechako and Fraser Rivers. This splendid park first came into being around 1984, and has since been a proud part of the Heritage River Trail System. The park provides an excellent vantage point to view the historic vertical-lift rail bridge. As you meander along the length of the park, keep your eyes peeled for beautiful Tree Spirit Carvings etched onto several cottonwood trees by artist Elmer Gunderson.
