The new Cariboo Museum and Visitor Centre is located in the southeast corner of an existing park and facing Hwy 97, providing an interactive and positive park edge, and partially screening the park from the highway. This facility has been designed to maximize the Park area available for park events and festivals. A two storey wing faces the highway as a billboard advertising the Cariboo Museum and Visitor Centre. A one storey exhibit wing is partially buried into the existing slope, preserving views from the park over a green roof to Pioneer Cemetery.
