Green Timbers Urban Forest Nature Trails

Green Timbers Urban Forest offers wetlands, lakes, grassland meadows and nature trails all nestled within a beautiful second growth forest.

Green Timbers is known as the birthplace of reforestation in British Columbia. Towering ancient forest once lined the old Yale Wagon Road (now Fraser Highway). As early as 1860 people tried to designate the area for parkland.

At the public's request, the first square mile was replanted in 1931, the province's first major reforestation project. In 1996 it was decided through referendum that the forest would henceforth be managed in perpetuity for its intrinsic values.
