“Yellowknife River Territorial Park”
14 Jul 2017
“Really busy”
Located on the Yellowknife River, the park is a perfect place to enjoy a picnic or fishing. For the more adventurous, boat up the river and into the string of lakes it connects to; or downstream into Back Bay and Yellowknife Bay on Great Slave Lake.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

It's only a several minutes drive from YK. Well patronized, too bad that involves litter, some vandalism and tree scalping. Boat launch and plenty of parking. Pleasant walking paths around. Brave souls jump and swim from the bridge. Some birds and other wildlife. Open in...More
