For the arts and culture enthusiasts there is the iconic Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts and the Dawson Creek Art Gallery.

There are also two ice Arenas, a Curling Rink, numerous outdoor walking trails and multiple sports fields. AND then there are the quadding, snowmobiling, boating, skiing, hiking, fishing and golfing opportunities. Dawson Creek has great public and private schools, a top-notch college, and a local hospital with transportation services for special medical needs.
