About Green Timbers Urban Forest
Green Timbers Urban Forest is one of the City's largest parks, offering over 183 hectares (452 acres) of wetlands, lakes, a fishing dock, grassland meadows and nature trails all nestled within a second growth forest.
The Green Timbers Greenway cuts through the park under the power lines just south of 96 Avenue. This greenway will take you across the City on bicycle or foot in either direction, connecting to Tynehead Regional Park in the east and Surrey Memorial Hospital in the west.
You can also explore nature and the heritage of Green Timbers at the Surrey Nature Centre. Green Timbers is known as the birthplace of reforestation in BC. The province's first major restoration project took place in 1931 when the first square mile of ancient forest by the old Yale Wagon Road (now Fraser Highway) was replanted.
