Cottonwood Island Park Reopens
Prince George, B.C. – It’s been a while but Cottonwood Island Park and the Heritage Trail have finally reopened to the public.
They’ve both been closed since last month’s cold snap caused a heavy build up of ice on the Nechako River. A part of the trail will remain closed due to excessive ice.
In the interest of public safety, the City hired a security firm to patrol the park entrances on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
The City acted after park visitors were seen playing near the river’s edge and on the ice near the CNR Bridge.
