Waterfront Plan

Waterfront Development Teaser Image

Have you been to other cities and towns with great waterfront access? How can we build on the success of our Riverfront Trail network to create a great destination along our riverfront?

The City of Quesnel has completed a Waterfront Plan to articulate a vision, evaluate economic opportunities, prepare conceptual plans and an implementation framework for waterfront improvements over the short, intermediate, and long terms. The Plan includes the future use of riverfront land, a concept for Baker Creek Park, and recommendations for improved RV parking near the downtown. The Plan also takes into consideration the new opportunities on Front Street with the potential highway reconfiguration and the open space that will come available with the public works yard move.

The final plan is now complete.

Our waterfront is for everyone

Join us and review the draft Waterfront Plan! We want to know your priorities for the 8 kilometers of waterfront in Quesnel’s core. The plan is based on the voices of the community. The study team hosted a major input phase in September of 2018 called High Water Days and used multiple methods to collect the perspectives of residents, businesses, First Nations, and many other stakeholders.

Here is where you can give us input (new participants welcome):
