About Tynehead Regional Park
Tynehead Regional Park is owned and maintained by Metro Vancouver. The park is 260 hectares of meadow and forest on the banks of the Serpentine River headwaters in Guildford. This park has a lot of wildlife, and is a habitat for owls, hawks and coyotes. The headwaters of the Serpentine River are spawning and rearing habitats for trout and salmon. The various trails and viewing platforms within the park offer great viewing for spawning salmon in October through December. Visit the Tynehead Hatchery, operated by the Serpentine Enhancement Society, and learn about the salmon of the Serpentine River and their efforts enhance the ecology of the river.
The park is an ideal place for a family day out, with picnic tables, the Tynehead Fish Hatchery and Butterfly Garden. The nature trails around the park are spectacular. Allow 40 minutes or more, depending on the trail you choose. Group campsites are also available for school outings, guide camps or special events, and can be booked through the Metro Vancouver website.
Tynehead Dog Off-Leash Park
Within Tynehead Regional Park you will find a 2.5 hectare (6 acre) dog off-leash area, accessible from the 168 Street parking lot, or a connecting pathway from the 96 Avenue (hatchery) parking lot. If you live in Fraser Heights, you can also access the off-leash area from the Tynehead pedestrian overpass which crosses Hwy 1 at 168 Street.
The Tynehead dog off-leash area offers a range of open space for open running and play, as well as a 750m off-leash pathway ideal for jogging with your dog. There are some on-leash paths that connect with the off-leash area, so keep an eye out for signs which indicate when to get the leash on. As this is a regional park, be aware of the Metro Vancouver Canine Code of Conduct.
