Downtown Prince George is in many ways the heart of the city. Independent shops and restaurants are popping up and thriving next to established hotel chains, financial institutions and one of the province’s most pioneering new buildings; the Wood Innovation and Design Centre.
Those living and working downtown can enjoy lightning fast commute times or a short walk to work.
The downtown core has a mix of housing opportunities that will work with most budgets. Whether you’re looking for a heritage home, an apartment or an affordable family home, you’re likely to find something that suits you downtown.
With early education organizations located in downtown Prince George and elementary and secondary education nearby, post-secondary institutions such as UNBC are easily accessible via public transit.
Most professional and retail services can be found downtown, as well as a library, the Via Rail station, the Visitor Info Centre and several churches of different denominations. The University Hospital of Northern BC is nearby.
For entertainment, downtown residents have easy access to art galleries, a movie theatre, shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs. The Prince George Farmers’ Market is open year-round on Saturdays.
Fourth Avenue is known as Specialty Avenue because of the locally owned boutiques, cafes and restaurants that have set up there over the years, but of course other great local experiences can be discovered at independent businesses on neighbouring streets as well.
Walking trails are available at nearby parks. The Four Seasons Leisure Pool and local gyms make exercising possible in any weather.
