Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve Park
Check out this beautiful natural area park that was gifted to the City of Surrey.
Dawn until dusk.
During winter, the parking lot is only open on weekends and statutory holidays.
Due to environmental sensitivities, there are no dogs (on or off-leash) or weddings permitted in the park. Photographers must follow the guidelines on photography in Surrey parks.
See towering trees and beautiful birds as you explore the rich history of Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve Park.
Discover hundreds of trees including some rare varieties and a registered heritage tree that is 175 feet tall. If you're interested in seeing animals, the pond is home to a variety of birds.
Explore the old field habitat, an old fruit tree garden with apples, blueberries, and figs, and walk along the looping nature trails. From the trail, take a peek at the sensitive riparian areas protecting E Creek that flows north to the Serpentine River.
The park was acquired in 2015 through the Federal Eco-gifting program. The Godwin Family donated this land to the City to protect it in perpetuity as a legacy for the Godwin family. Over the years, they planted hundreds of sequoia, redwood, and fir trees, along with many other species.
There are interpretive signs in the park with more information about the Godwin family and the importance of these lands as a unique natural area. A management plan was created in keeping with the conditions of the eco-gifting and will be managed as a natural park by the City of Surrey.
