Parks School Programs
Connect your students with your local parks.
Surrey Parks fosters connections to nature and is committed to building a legacy for future generations. You can help by making environmental stewardship a priority when visiting one of over 200 publicly-accessible parks with your class—find nature trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and more.
Outdoor Learning Resources for Teachers
Looking for meaningful stewardship opportunities you can do with your class? Take your learning outdoors with regular and repeated visits to a local park or nearby shade trees! Our free resources will help you prepare for your park visits and connect your students with our urban forest.

Releaf Tree Planting Program
Thank you to all the schools, teachers and students who participated in our Releaf planting program this spring. Together, 381 students helped plant 78 shade trees in eight parks across the city! Students also planted bulbs around each shade tree, which will help beautify our neighbourhoods.
We are now planning our fall planting program, with a limited number of planting opportunities in October. Each year, we focus our efforts on planting projects in several parks throughout the city. To reduce travel and better connect students with their local parks, we will be inviting schools located near these parks to plant with us.

Organize your class to clean up your local parks. We will provide an instructional video, litter pickers, bags, classroom tracker poster and other resources and activities.
At the end of the school year, participating classes will be entered to win a prize! Together, we can make a difference and build a greener, healthier, and safer community. Watch this space for more information.
