Park Information

Whippletree Park is a new 0.25 hectare (0.6 acre) neighbourhood park that is located in South Newton near the corner of 62 Avenue and 138 Street. Archibald Creek runs through the park from the south, before joining the Serpentine River and eventually flowing into Mud Bay.

Park Planning Phase

The City of Surrey is in the planning phase of Whippletree Park. This process includes planning the protection, design, development and operation of the future park. The South Newton neighbourhood is identified as an area that will benefit greatly from a new public greenspace. The Whippletree Park plan will be guided by community feedback through various public engagement opportunities following the completion of an environmental assessment.

Feedback

In February 2021, residents were invited to take part in an online survey to help guide the planning and naming of the park. The park was temporarily called 72K Greenbelt in South Newton, before the community decided on the name Whippletree Park. The information we gathered helped us develop a vision for the future of this park.

The survey generated a strong turnout, with nearly 1100 responses. Residents are excited for new active park space in their neighbourhood and showed support for all the proposed types of amenities.
