Enjoy Bird Watching in Parks
On your scenic trails, take a moment to enjoy the many bird species that visit, nest, and live in the parks across the city. Here are some of the best birding spots to visit:
Surrey Lake Park
On a typical day, you might see a Bald Eagle soaring above or a Marsh Wren perched on the swaying bulrushes with its characteristic tail sticking straight up.
Mud Bay Park
Spot some reclusive shorebirds and waterfowl in Canada's most valued Important Bird Area: Boundary Bay.
Blackie Spit Park
Twice a year, the park is a rest stop for dozens of species of migratory birds. Listen for Red-winged Blackbirds or spot a hummingbird in the treetops.
Elgin Heritage Park
Catch a glimpse of a Barn Owl near the mini barn built especially for them. Print our Bird Watching Checklist to see how many local birds you can spot.
Look for songbirds or a Pileated Woodpecker, identified by their large size, bright red head, and loud cackling.
Find Surrey's Big Trees
Green Timbers Urban Forest Park
Once home to towering 200-foot tall trees, this unique urban forest consists of trees planted from seedlings in the first attempt at reforestation in British Columbia.
Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest Park
This is one of the first designated urban forest parks in Canada. After it was logged in the early 1900s, the forest regenerated on its own, resulting in a diverse community of plants.
Port Kells Park
Look for the oldest known tree planted in a Surrey Park and some giant old trees back in the forest.
Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve Park
Spot the 175-foot Douglas-fir, a designated Heritage Tree that is over 180 years old.
