Management Planning for Three Quesnel Area Parks

What was this engagement about?

BC Parks is in the process of developing management plans for Dragon Mountain Park, Quesnel Lake Park and Titetown Park. The initial planning and project plan approval periods have concluded, and BC Parks invited public comments on the draft management plans for Dragon Mountain Park and Quesnel Lake Park. The draft management plan for Titletown Park is still under development. Comments were accepted until June 22, 2015, by online comment form, with the option to email or mail a printed copy of the form.

The 1,773 hectare Dragon Mountain Provincial Park, located approximately 14 kilometres south of Quesnel, contains mostly immature and mature conifer forests, with some deciduous forests and a small amount of old forest.

Approximately 110 kilometres southeast of Quesnel, Quesnel Lake Park consists of seven sites around Quesnel Lake, with a total area of 872 hectares. The sites include an early winter area for caribou, valuable fish habitat for spawning sockeye and Kokanee salmon, and early season foraging sites and late season access to salmon for grizzly bears.

Located approximately 88 kilometres northwest of Quesnel, the 1,070 hectare Titetown Park protects immature and mature pine and aspen forests and is traversed by, and provides access to, the Nuxalk-Carrier grease trail, also known as the Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail.

All three parks were a result of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan Goal 2 (Special Feature) process.
