Jim Good honoured with local street names

Jim Good

Prince George has two new street names and they both honour local resident Jim Good.

John Brink, founder, President, and CEO of the Brink Group of Companies announced Wednesday that Brink Properties will be dedicating the names of two streets in the new Nechako Terrace Subdivision to Good.

One of Canada’s original naturalists, Good has been developing Goodsir Nature Park located just north of Prince George for the past 30 years. A designated Canadian Botanical Conservatory, Goodsir offers 160 acres of plant exploration highlighting a national collection of species.

Goodsir Place and Goodsir Crescent will become part of the Nechako Terrace Subdivision mix of street names and have both been approved by the City of Prince George.

“Jim Good is a true inspiration and the perfect example of someone our community should be proud of,” said Brink. “By dedicating these street names to Jim, it’s another opportunity to honour the legacy of a wonderful local resident who pursued his passions in life and never gave up.”

Good founded Goodsir Nature Park nearly 35 years ago and dedicated his life to creating a space where his passion for nature and botany could be shared with Prince George residents and visitors. Good spent countless summers driving across Canada sourcing tree, plant, flower, and other native botanical species. This enormous effort has resulted in Goodsir serving as an educational hub in his community and one of the most remarkable and beautiful botanical parks in the world.

“What’s equally inspiring about Jim is that he singlehandedly built Goodsir Nature Park as a hobby he was passionate about and funded it – in addition to raising a family – on a modest salary,” said Brink. “Despite the many hurdles Jim faced in life, he refused to give up on his dreams and pursued them relentlessly.”

Admission to Goodsir Nature Park is by donation and Jim volunteers his time to guide individuals through both the park and his music museum, which consists of more than 35,000 records.
