It might be known as the Heritage neighbourhood, but this popular residential area to the west of downtown Prince George has a range of older and newer developments for home buyers to explore.
Affordable housing, great schools and the convenient location to downtown make it an attractive family neighbourhood. It also has a lot to offer for those hoping to downsize.
The Heritage neighbourhood is in an area that was known as Central Fort George when the city was incorporated in 1915. One of the most significant heritage homes still standing today is the Munro/Moffat House on North Moffat St., one of the few remaining log homes in the city. You can find out more about the city’s heritage homes in this guide.
Aside from great family homes, it’s also worth considering the Heritage area if you are looking to downsize to a townhouse or are moving into a seniors’ housing complex.
One of the reasons this area is so popular with families is because of the nearby elementary and secondary schools. There is also a Montessori school, a preschool and daycare facilities, giving parents multiple options to support their kids’ development.
The Heritage neighbourhood is close to all of the downtown amenities Prince George has to offer. Shops, restaurants, entertainment, professional services, health and post-secondary education facilities are just a short drive or bus ride away.
Moore’s Meadow is one of the city’s best-loved parks. It features scenic walking trails and an off-leash area for dogs. Named after Charles Moore, who arrived in Fort George in 1907, the meadow part of the park was originally his farm.
Cross-country skiers will love being located on the west side of the city as it’s only a quick drive to Otway, one of the best cross-country ski areas in Canada.
Theatre lovers will have plenty of opportunities to experience live performances at nearby Theatre NorthWest.
