Our Community: So how do our 13,000 residents describe Dawson Creek? First and foremost, a warm and welcoming community that is lots of fun! Located in sunny Northeast British Columbia, our community has an amazing quality of life with something for everyone. For the arts and culture enthusiasts there is the iconic Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts and the Dawson Creek Art Gallery. The South Peace Community Multiplex houses three incredible facilities: The Encana Events Centre which has hosted a multitude of world-class events ranging from the Under 17 World Hockey Challenge to big name shows such as KISS, Russell Peters and Luke Bryan; the Lakota Agri-plex, an impressive equestrian centre; and the Kenn Borek Aquatic Centre that has an 8-lane lap pool, a leisure pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub and even a climbing wall. 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. With an airport three minutes from downtown you can find daily flights to Vancouver if you ever feel the need to get away. But why would you when you are enjoying our crisp, sunny winters (winter precipitation totals around 25 mm/month) or our almost unlimited daily summer sunshine of up to 17.5 hours.
