Things to do

Mountain biking trails

Adventure in our backyard

We’re surrounded by nature. Whatever the season, outdoor recreation is endless. Bring your mountain bike, hiking shoes, kayaks, skis or snowshoes and #explorequesnel.

Doggy destinations

Your canine friends are welcome in many of our parks. Please keep them on a leash and scoop up that poop! Waste bags are available at several of our parks, courtesy of the City of Quesnel. Sugarloaf Dog Park is our off-leash dog park.

Escape the elements

If the outdoors isn’t your thing, or the weather isn’t cooperating, there’s still lots of things you can do! Visit the largest free-span turf building in BC, tour the Quesnel & District Museum & Archives or go for a swim or sauna at our Arts & Recreation Centre.

Glimpse of the past

Embark on a self-guided walking tour downtown, or stop by the Quesnel & District Museum & Archives for a guided tour. You can even shop for local, handcrafted goods in the oldest standing building in Quesnel.

Parks our kids love

Our parks and playgrounds are located throughout the city, boasting new structures and loads of green space to run and play. You’ll want to pack snacks so you can stay a while!

Trails for days

From paved, scenic trails conveniently located downtown to rugged, technical trails in lush green forest, we have trails for days! Winter doesn’t stop us. We have designated cross-country ski trails and our multi-use trails offer great winter recreation.
