Roderick Haig-Brown Park has a wide diversity of trees and plants; many with uses developed by the local indigenous people. The bark of this high-bush cranberry can be used for treating coughs. The heart leaved arnica below is used for cuts and bruises, and is thought to be a love charm.

After orientation we explore the peaceful and lush trails through the diverse riparian zone (the valuable land beside a waterway). The foliage is rich, the side channels busy with waterfowl & beaver. We cross bridge walkways and cruise along, losing ourselves in the peace and beauty of nature. We may see deer, coyotes or bears (they are very shy in the park). We make stops along the river, at a hidden beach, or among the tall cedars and cottonwoods. All this with the added thrill of riding your own Segway PT. We operate this tour under a Park Use Permit issued by BC Parks. We are true advocates for the preservation of this remarkable area. We strive to tread lightly and pride ourselves in providing interesting facts about the salmon migration, indigenous uses of certain plants, and the history of the region. Why not bring a picnic for after the trip and continue to enjoy the park at your leisure. RESERVATIONS
