Mud Bay Park is located in South Surrey and is a nature area with beautiful views of Boundary Bay and a great place to spot many shorebirds that frequent the area. Some of the birds that you may see as you stroll along the trails include the Killdeer, the Long-billed Dowitcher, the Western Sandpiper, and many more. The walk is short and there are two separate sections that can be done as a loop.

From the parking lot, walk towards the wooden map board and begin walking along the wide, gravel path. Follow the trail until it reaches a junction on the left but continue going straight and head towards the further loop first. A short distance further, walk to the left and past the metal gate as the trail follows near the shore and away from the noisy highway.

This loop that's furthest from the parking lot has several great views and a couple of sections where you can veer off the trail for a closer look at Boundary Bay. Enjoy the scenery as you continue your walk until you get to the end of this section at another metal gate. Return by either going right along the gravel path near the highway, or retracing your steps back along the trail near the shore that you just walked.

When you reach the junction where you passed the first metal gate, continue walking back in the direction of the parking lot, but this time go right at the junction you saw earlier. This is the loop that is closest to the parking lot area and it too offers great views of Boundary Bay. The trail continues to meander along the shoreline before reaching the end and turning sharply to the left. Walk the final straight path as it returns you to the parking lot area.

Mud Bay Park is located in South Surrey along the shores of Boundary Bay.

Although Mud Bay Park is located right by Highway 99, getting there requires going through the Panorama Ridge neighbourhood before passing under the highway.

From Vancouver, drive towards the Alex Fraser Bridge and cross it heading southbound. There are several ways to get to the Alex Fraser, including using the East-West Connector or the Queensborough Bridge.

After crossing the Alex Fraser Bridge continue southbound along Highway 91. Take Exit #1 towards Surrey and Highway #10 heading Eastbound. Loop around and crossover the highway and drive east on Highway #10.

Drive about 1km and turn right onto 120th Street. Then turn left onto New McLellan Road. After driving another 1km, turn right onto 125a Street and follow it past the elementary school. Veer left onto Station Road and follow this road down the hill as it turns into 125a Street again. At the end of 125a Street, the road forces you left onto Colebrook Road. Watch for signs a short distance further and turn right, crossing the railway tracks. The road veers left onto Railway Road and this will take you under Highway #99, right into the parking lot for Mud Bay Park.
