#7 Harrison Beach
Harrison Lake has always been a popular family destination and its sandy southern shoreline is what gives the village its holiday resort atmosphere year round.
In summer, however, Harrison Hot Springs’ population swells six-fold to up to 10,000 with seasonal residents, day-trippers and holidaymakers. Some come for the hot springs; others for the golf, fishing or fresh farm produce. But whatever the draw, a stroll along the beachside promenade is nearly always on the list.
#6 Pioneer Park in Agassiz
Although the Pioneer Park in Agassiz is currently converted to a set for film and televison, this quaint park along pioneer avenue is home to the beautiful train station museum and visitor centre.
#5 Hope Memorial Park
The memorial Park is complete with a series of chainsaw carvings, children’s play areas, the friendship gardens, picnic areas in both large open grass areas, and towering evergreen trees. The Park is open year round and is close to many local activities like the Hope museum, the artist guild, Hope theatre and more. For more information visit the Hope Visitor Information Center.
