Surrey and Langley
The cities of Surrey and Langley are situated east of Vancouver, and present some of the most extraordinary outdoor recreational experiences in the Lower Mainland.
Boasting nearly 6,000 acres of designated parkland, it's no wonder that Surrey has earned the nickname of "The City of Parks." Here, you'll find urban forests, nature reserves, lush trails, salmon-bearing streams and beautiful gardens. Explore Redwood Park - Surrey's notable arboretum - featuring the biggest stand of giant redwoods north of California. Or walk through the resort community of Crescent Beach and watch for harbour seals and whales in Boundary Bay.
Langley lies directly east of Surrey and features a myriad of walking and hiking opportunities. Shaded by towering cottonwoods, Langley's picturesque trails offer unique views of the area's charming farmland and calm meandering streams.
