Uniquely Boundary Country
The Great Trail (formerly the Trans Canada Trail) and the Kettle and Granby Rivers all converge in Grand Forks (pop. 3,985). This urban enclave is nestled in a lush, broad valley flanked by the Monashee Mountains and mile after mile of rolling farmlands. In this tranquil landscape you’ll find postcard scenery, abundant outdoor recreation, heritage sites and cultural attractions unique only to this part of BC. Our arts scene is alive and well and we have several must attend festivals and events, including the baseball tournament and Cannafest.
Grand Forks is Boundary Country’s largest city. It’s where the enduring stories of farmers, prospectors, Doukhobors and up-and-coming baseball players reveal themselves. You’ll find them in nearby pastures, the geode rich fields of Rock Candy Mine, at the Boundary Museum, and on the pitcher’s mound at the Grand Forks International Tournament.
The timeless architecture of our downtown core invites a stroll into the galleries and shops that anchor our vibrant arts scene. The Great Trail and the Kettle and Granby Rivers beckon you outdoors no matter the season.
They may be classified as a city, but settle down for any length of time in Grand Forks and you’ll fall in love with their endearing small-town charm.
