History Never Ends
In the original city plan for Prince George, two parks were shown. One, Alfred Circle, was never built. Today there are more than 120 city parks covering more than 1,500 hectares in the city.
Services and facilities for young people continue to be added in Prince George.
Most service clubs in Prince George started in the 1940s, and soon afterwards began providing playground equipment, scholarships and other aid for children.
The Kinsentres, the Elks Centre, Rotary Stadium where thousands of young people play soccer each summer and the Roteract water park are all projects for young people provided by local service clubs.
In the summer of 2002, a new skate park on Massey Drive was under construction, expected to open in September. The Downtown Rotary Club donated $50,000 of the cost.
