Situated just east of Vancouver, Surrey is BC's second most populated city (after Vancouver) and presents some of the most extraordinary outdoor recreational experiences in the Metro Vancouver area.
Featuring nearly 6,000 acres of designated parkland, Surrey's moniker as "The City of Parks" is definitely well earned. Here, you'll find urban forests, nature reserves, lush trails, salmon-bearing streams and beautiful gardens.
Explore Redwood Park - Surrey's notable arboretum - which includes the biggest stand of giant redwoods north of California. Or walk through Tynehead Regional Park and explore the upper Serpentine River near the Serpentine Salmon Hatchery. The City of Surrey boasts about a dozen parks with its own trails and pathways, offering ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
Located in Surrey, the Serpentine Fen Nature Trail offers a scenic walk and is a popular destination with bird watchers.
Tynehead Regional Park is located just off Highway #1 in Surrey and is a popular park for hiking, dog-walking, and learning about salmon along the Serpentine River.
