Our largest park, James White Park (formerly known as Mountview Park) has all of the features you would expect from a municipal park - large open areas, ballfields, tennis courts, area for dogs, disc golf course - and yet there is still space to find peace and solitude.

Recreational facilities

Tennis
There are four tennis courts in James White Park - so head on down and get your tennis elbow back into shape! 

Baseball Diamond
Available for a good ol' family game of baseball.

Lizard Range Disc Golf
The James White Park is also host to the Lizard Range Disc Golf Course, free to play as often as you like. No need to "make up" courses in nearby green spaces, you have the benefit of a permanent disc golf facility in your area! You can buy discs at The Aquatic Centre or Giv'er shirts in downtown Fernie.

Walking Trails

Following the Elk River and passing through the James White Park is the Montview Hiking Trail. A trail which connects to a larger network of recreation trails.

In the summer months the Montview Trail is used by mountain bikers, cyclists, hikers, joggers and dog walkers. Please keep your head up and share the trail. In the winter months the trail is used by cross country skiers and snowshoers as an access route to and from the community.
