    When you walk through this park, it's hard to believe that it was once an area that was inhabited by houses and a small community of people. It was known as the Island Cache and well populated until the spring came when the floods came. The floods still come annually and there are signs everywhere as many trails and some bridges have been washed out. However, it is a great set of trails that take you along both the Nechako and Fraser rivers. Great place for a walk, run, or bike ride.
