Self-Guided Activities

Park Crawls

Parks are more than picnic tables and playgrounds. They protect ecosystems, plants and animals. They are places to recreate and to search for solitude. They also provide opportunities to learn from our past, embrace culture, and express ourselves creatively. 

Get to know new parks with our weekly park crawls. Each week, a new theme will introduce you to the diversity of Surrey’s parks and help you to see them through a different lens.  

Pop-Up Park Walks

Explore nature! Follow a self-guided nature walk in a different park each week. Each walk will highlight seasonal or natural park features, wow you with fun facts and nature knowledge, and inspire you to care for our parks.


Get inspired or gain some new nature knowledge before your next outdoor adventure.
