Greenwood (pop. 625) is Canada’s smallest city. People come to see its historic sites and to take driving tours around the area to glimpse its mining and railroad heritage. Mountain biking is popular along the Trans Canada Trail and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy swimming, canoeing or kayaking, fishing and camping in nearby provincial parks. The remarkably well preserved commercial buildings and homes that cluster around its compact centre immediately beam people back to a turn-of-the-20th century mining boom town.
