Located along the Elk River, Dogwood Park encompasses the area from the West Fernie Bridge (Highway 3 crossing) straight through to Coal Creek.
Within the park there is the City's boat launch (non-motorized boats only), picnic areas, picturesque viewscapes of the Lizard Range, the Leroux Pond (home to ducks, turtles, frogs and more) and is part of the Fernie Recreational Trail Network.
Located at the north end of the park is a plaque to commemorate the War Measures Act. When the Canadian Government enacted the War Measures Act for the first time at the outbreak of the First World War, many Ukrainians and other Europeans were branded as ‘enemy aliens’ and sent to internment camps. Take a visit to the palque and pay respects to the many citizens that faced hard times being place into these camps.
