Nature Trails Brochure 2022

Crescent Park With over 120 acres, Crescent Park is one of Surrey’s largest parks. Walk through a forest that transitions from evergreen to deciduous trees (those that drop their leaves) and past a pond. A variety of birds and other wildlife live here; eagles, owls, frogs and coyotes are just some of the creatures you might see. Did you know that Crescent Park was once a logging camp? It was part of a corridor used to transport timber to the Nicomekl River. “Nurse stumps” scattered throughout the park are remnants of this history. These stumps are given this name because they help keep the forest healthy and provide habitat for plants and animals. Crescent Park has one of the most extensive trail networks in Surrey. The loop around the pond is wide and compact, while trails through the forest offer a variety of slopes and surfaces. A loop made up of the outermost trails around Crescent Park is approximately 3.8 km long with many options for shorter loops. Relax and enjoy the park’s trails, open fields, picnic tables and shelters. Other amenities include two baseball diamonds, large multi-purpose fields and two playgrounds.
