Recreational Opportunities In addition to our indoor recreational facilities, the City of Surrey offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Get out and explore our nature trails and gardens, public tennis courts, youth parks, water parks, bike trails and more and stay active for life.
GARDENS Horticultural Gardens Explore the gardens in Bear Creek Park, including specialty floral, ornamental grass and shade garden beds, or marvel at the various horticultural beds in Holland Park. Community Gardens The Cedar Grove Organic Community Garden is at the northwest corner of Cedar Grove Park in Whalley. Drop by to explore the seasonal plantings and to chat with the local gardeners.
NATURE TRAILS Spot an owl or an eagle’s
nest and watch for returning salmon at Bear Creek Park; discover the wetlands, grassland meadows, marsh and lake at Green Timbers Urban Forest Park; or take in the diverse habitats at Hawthorne Park. MOUNTAIN BIKING Quibble Creek Greenway features a small pump trail, which is great for honing skills like cornering and jumping. Invergarry Park is home to a vast forest and nature area, as well as one of the region’s largest and most popular downhill mountain bike parks. YOUTH PARKS North Surrey is home to three youth parks—Kwantlen Youth Park, Chuck Bailey Youth Park and Bear Creek Youth Park—offering a variety of skateboard and BMX features for all skill levels. DOG OFF-LEASH PARKS Both Kennedy Park and Tannery Road Park in North Surrey offer dog off-leash areas with plenty of space to roam and play. Before you unleash your dog in the designated park space, please remember the off-leash etiquette. WATER PARKS Bridgeview Park, Bear Creek Park and Hawthorne Park spray parks are activated by push buttons when it is warmer than 20 degrees Celsius. Both areas offer many additional amenities, such as walking paths, sports fields and picnic areas. In the summer, don’t miss Bear Creek Park’s train and mini golf facility.
