The park was established in 1972 and is named after Canada’s Olympic skier, Nancy Greene who grew up in nearby Rossland and at an early age started her skiing career at Red Mountain. There is no known evidence of historic use of this area. Nancy Green Park lies in the Ktunaxa and Kinbasket, Okanagan, Sinixt and Shuswap first nation traditional territories.
This 203 hectare park lies within the Monashee Mountains. Its primary focus is a sub-alpine lake that can only be found in one other protected area. Associated with this lake is a small wetland marsh habitat that is a rare occurrence at this elevation. Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park’s natural heritage, please do not damage or remove them.
Nancy Greene Park supports a diverse population of small mammals such as squirrels, chipmunks and porcupines. Moose, deer and bear are occasionally observed. Park users should always be aware of bears and other wildlife in our park environment. Never feed or approach bears or other wildlife. Please view all wildlife from a distance.
