Surrey Lake Park Nature Trails

Surrey Lake Park, an artificially created lake, was opened in 2002 and provides a number of benefits including habitat enhancement, flood control, and opportunities for recreation. The lake varies between 10 and 20 acres in size depending on the time of year and percipitation levels.

Enjoy a walk through three habitats on a short loop-trail or enjoy the day on one of the many park benches overlooking the lake and wetland. Bring a camera or binoculars, if you have them, and try to spot some of the abundant wildlife this park has to offer.

Although artificially created, the lake now provides habitat for a variety of amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds and mammals. Depending on the time of year, fish species such as cutthroat trout, chum and coho salmon and steelhead can be found in the lake.

Like all lakes and wetlands, this area attracts a broad diversity of waterbirds such as Great Blue Herons, their uncommon relatives the Green Heron, Buffleheads, Marsh Wrens and King Fishers.

Only just steps away in the forested area along the loop trail, forest-dwelling birds can be found in abundance. Black-cap Chickadees, Spotted Towhees, Cedar Waxwings and Pileated Woodpeckers are just a sampling of the birds that call this park home.
