Riverside Park and Campground Riverside Park is Vanderhoof ’s largest park located on Burrard St. heading north - the entrance is before the bridge over Nechako River. The Park Office is open from May long weekend to the end of September from 7am to 10pm, but the park itself is open year round. The campground has 38 camping spots that accommodate tents to RV’s. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Use of showers, sani-dump, and firewood are available when campsite

There is a covered picnic area with picnic tables that can be reserved in the summer months for reunions, fundraisers, birthdays and more. During the summer the popular farmers market is held here and has become a meeting place for the community.

Riverside Park and Nature Trail The 1.2 km loop walking path is lamp-lit and the trail is maintained year round for running, walking, and cross-country skiing. Horses, bikes and motorized vehicles are prohibited from using the path. Please pick up after your pet by using bags provided from the dog sanitation stations located along the path. Riverside Park is home to the Nechako Migratory Bird Sanctuary where thousands of Canada Geese, trumpeter swans and other migrating birds can be seen each spring and fall. The observation and viewing tower provides the perfect place to watch the birds without causing undue disruptions to the flocks. From the tower the nature trail continues along the bank of the Nechako River going west to the WL McLeod Wetland area.

Sports to See and Do in Summer If you enjoy nature’s beauty the Stuart/Nechako region is rich in scenery and wildlife, perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. The region is abundant with deer, moose, grizzly and black bear, but be careful these are wild animals and should not be fed or approached. Bird watchers can view hundreds of species at the bird sanctuary along the Nechako River in Vanderhoof. Bring your binoculars, its the perfect perch for bird lovers to view migrating swans, geese and ducks in the late fall and early spring. As well as the many walking trails we have biking trails and for the more adventurous we have the bike skills park located on 7th Street. For the younger children there are many play areas as well as the Ferland Water Park. Let the kids splash around while parents get the chance to catch some rays and have a pleasant day in the park.
