About Surrey Lake
Surrey Lake Park, an artificially created lake, was opened in 2002. The lake park provides habitat enhancement, flood control, and opportunities for recreation. The size of the lake depends on the time of year and precipitation levels, between 10 and 20 acres in size.
Enjoy a walk through 3 habitats on a short loop-trail or enjoy the day on 1 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 wildlife at the park.
Although artificially created, amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds and mammals now live at the lake. Depending on the time of year, you'll find fish species such as cutthroat trout, chum and coho salmon and steelhead in the lake.
This area attracts waterbirds like Great Blue Herons, the Green Heron, Buffleheads, Marsh Wrens and King Fishers. In the nature trail, you'll see forest-dwelling birds like Black-cap Chickadees, Spotted Towhees, Cedar Waxwings and Pileated Woodpeckers.
The nature trail walk (PDF. New window) around Surrey Lake is around 1.5 kilometres long. Allow 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete this walk.
