Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park is the City of Prince George's premiere park, located on the banks of the Fraser River. This park was formerly known as Fort George Park, but was renamed in 2015, recognizing that the Park had once been a village for the
Lheidli T'enneh. The word Lheidli means "where the two rivers flow together" while T'enneh means "the people". Pets are not permitted in this park, except along the Heritage River Trail System when pets are on-leash.
Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park Pavilion
Construction is underway this summer of a new structure between the spray park and the playground. The pavilion project is being undertaken in partnership with the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation and will revitalize a well used picnic shelter in the park. The Lheidli T'enneh Park pavilion will feature a wood roof that opens towards the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako rivers. Picnic tables will be placed under the structure and on the existing concrete pad. A patio will also extend from the pavilion to provide new spaces for events, performances, and celebrations.
