Dawn until dusk
Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest is a 130 hectare park with a natural second growth forest, after it was logged early in this century. Compare this to Green Timbers which is reforested, or Redwood Park where exotic species replaced the native species. Birds, coyotes, and black-tailed deer still live in Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest.
You may also see the rare orchid in this park, Rattlesnake-plantain. But don't pick them!
