Prince George, B.C. – Thinking of heading to Connaught Hill Park on Canada Day? Well, think again.

Today the City of Prince George says the park will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic all day July 1 in preparation for Canada Day fireworks at 11 that night.

“Residents are further advised not to try to go up the hill to view the fireworks or the set up,” says senior communications officer Mike Kellett. “The gate to the park will be closed and signs will be posted at several locations to discourage visitors.”

He adds “there will also be volunteers on-site ready to escort would-be onlookers back down the hill.”

Kellett says the park will reopen on Sunday, July 2 at 9 a.m.


Thank You for the advance notice; but how many communications officers do we the City Tax Payers employ?

Besides Rob????/ Probably whole slew of them

    Rob is just the tip of a large and incredibly expensive iceberg. Kelletts comment has me very curious who this volunteer army is that will be guarding the hill.

Yes besides Rob….amazing! No wonder we don’t have enough cash on hand to replace our aging facilities. :(

The only thing that I want to hear from the City’s Communications Office is that all of the City’s Communications Officers have been let go! Perhaps the City Manager or the Mayor is capable of making such an announcement?

    The Mayor is a lifetime civil servant, he would never advocate the downsizing of a useless bureaucracy.
