Located on the banks of the Elk River, Annex Park is a popular stop for those looking to spend part of their day.
The park is enjoyed by bikers, walkers and joggers during the summer months and snowshoe and cross country enthusiast in the winter.
Annex Park is a natural area surrounded by community trails, it features a duck pond, grassy open areas and picnic facilities. This is a great place to introduce the little ones to our resident ducks. Dogs are welcome on leash, and there is a specific off-leash area as well.
The trails in the park connect to a large network of trails that explore the Fernie Community. Pick up a copy of the Fernie Trail Map at the Visitor Information Centre on HWY 3, at the museum downtown or take a look at the basic map in our related document this page.
There is a parking area at the entrance of the park by taking 11th Street off the Hwy through town. Drive to the end of 11th Street up and over the dyke and follow left to the parking area.
Annex park also hosts the annual Wapiti Music Festival in August which is a Canadian Indie music festival sponsored by local business and CBC radio. Check out the events page to get more information.
