Granisle mayor’s message

An invitation from Granisle mayor Gerald Ewald

Granisle mayor Gerald Ewald

Granisle is working hard to become the recreation and tourism center of Babine Lake. We are fortunate to live in an area of inspiring natural beauty and immensely abundant wildlife. This year we are modernizing and reopening our ice arena, and upgrading our curling rink.

We are also going to work at expanding our trail system to improve access for hikers, bikers, snow mobiles, and quads.

We are working hard with BC Parks to keep Red Bluff Park as the gem of Babine Lake. A BMX park is also in the plans for this year with the hopes of hosting races next year. Our area is world famous for our great fishing and out door adventure opportunities.

The Fathers’ Day Fishing Derby is always very popular and we are expecting a great turn out this year as well. In August we will be hosting an adventure race for the first time. These are just a few of the attractions that Granisle and Area have to offer.

If you have never been here or have not had a chance to experience our hospitality for a while I encourage you to visit us and see for yourself the wonders of the area.

On behalf of the Council and citizens of Granisle I wish you a safe and happy summer and hope to see you here.
