Playgrounds in College Heights

Today’s post is dedicated to knowing more about Playgrounds in Prince George in the area known as College Heights.

If you’re new to Prince George, this is the Western section of Prince George when you follow Hwy 16 up and past Costco. I’ve included all playgrounds on the hill and within city limits. I didn’t include school playgrounds unless it was suitable for kids under 5, but don’t forget to check out local schools for a play space.

Looking for the sweet playgrounds, College Heights is full of great options, unlike the Hart. There might not be a big park, but there are a ton of different play structures in a lot of the small neighbourhoods.
