Dawson Creek Community
The rolling foothills of the Northern Rockies surround Dawson Creek where the sky is always blue and there is something to offer everyone. The quality of life in Dawson Creek is like nothing you have ever experienced before. There is no long commute to work and no one is in a rush. For most people the commute is two or three minutes and they go home at lunch time. Time after work is spent pursuing some of the many outdoor activities.
Quadding, snowmobiling, boating, downhill skiing, Nordic skiing, hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, hunting, golf and hockey are just some of the activities residents do every day. The City boasts first class amenities like a curling rink, two hockey rinks, three golf courses, an eight lane lap pool, a local ski hill and an events centre hosting groups like Kiss, Dixie Chicks, Motley Crue and Luke Bryan. And when you really need to get out of town the airport is about a 2 minute drive from downtown with two daily flights to Vancouver.
Dawson Creek is a family town with plenty to do for the kids and first class schools (offering French Immersion) and a great college. In addition to the many sporting activities there is also a very large arts community with dance and music classes offered.
