Google Translate
Translation – Explanation and Caution

The electronic translation service on the City of Surrey’s web site is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation may vary in some of the languages offered by Google. The goal of the basic translation is to capture the general intention of the original English material.

Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages. Unfortunately, not all the languages spoken in the City of Surrey are translated. Punjabi is one of the languages not currently offered, and to remedy the situation, the City has been in contact with Google and they have committed to making Punjabi available in the future.

The City of Surrey cannot guarantee the quality, accuracy, or completeness of any translated information. Before you act on translated information, the City encourages you to confirm any facts that are important to you and the decisions you make.

The City of Surrey offers interpretation services at all its facilities. If you have a question about the material you read on our web site, we encourage you to stop by a City facilities to discuss it. You can also contact the City at (604) 591-4011 to receive interpretation support.

The City is committed to enhancing the accessibility of its web site to all its citizens, and appreciates any feedback that it receives.

Friends of the Forest volunteer activities 

We're part of many stewardship activities to help our park natural areas. We do many activities around Surrey:

  • plant native trees and shrubs
  • remove invasive plants
  • clean up litter and yard waste
  • remove graffiti from trees
  • give out information to neighbours
  • watch for vandalism, and notify Parks staff.

Friends of the Forest improves natural areas

A natural area is parkland that has been left to grow as nature allows with minimal development or structures.

It contains native trees and vegetation, and is used by wildlife for habitat. Man and girl building birdhouse

Examples of natural areas:

  • forests
  • marshes 
  • meadows.

Often these areas are abused through illegal dumping of yard waste and garbage. As a result, natural areas can become degraded and overgrown with invasive and unwanted plants.


Getting involved

Register with the Friends of the Forest program, and Surrey Parks will give you relevant training, equipment and support.
