Opened in 2009, the Spirit Square is the Fort’s downtown gathering place. This park commemorates the 150th anniversary of the establishment of British Columbia as a Crown Colony. The park features include a large paved plaza, a centrepiece representing First Nations and European fur traders’ canoes, the town’s war memorial, a botanical garden and a monument to Estonian national hero and local pioneer Johan Pitka.
Please ensure you are not leaving your garbage out over night! This can encourage bears to come into the community and end badly for everyone.
