The Kimberley Nature Park protects important wildlife habitat and provides exceptional opportunities for ecological education and non-motorized recreation. Located inside the City of Kimberley in the foothills of the Purcell Mountain range, the 840-hectare nature park and the adjacent 200-hectare Horse Barn Valley Interpretive Forest contain more than 50 kilometres of trails linking forested hillsides, panoramic viewpoints, pockets of old-growth cedar, rugged talus slopes and numerous small ponds and streams. The largest municipal park in British Columbia is managed by the non-profit Kimberley Nature Park Society, which has a mandate of conservation, education and recreation.
