Heritage Park is located on the corner of 107th Avenue and 98th Street. It was opened in conjunction with the Fun in The Sun festivities that are going on throughout the week.

The event celebrates Fort St. John’s parks by holding family-friendly parties and projects in different locations. From 1pm to 3pm on Tuesday, the City will host a safe communities day in Centennial Park. On Friday, there will be movies in the Centennial Park starting at 7pm. The movies will be shown on Canada’s largest outdoor movie screen.
