Invergarry Park Over 100 years ago, Surrey began consolidating land for the conservation of the Bon Accord ravine and creek system which led to the creation of Invergarry Park. The creeks that pass through the park (Bon Accord Creek and Wallace Creek) provide important fish habitat. Riparian areas (those bordering streams, lakes and wetlands) provide shade, shelter from predators, and food for the insects that fish depend on. Today, the park protects significant natural forest and riparian creek habitat. The park’s walking trails lead up and down through the forest, giving you unique perspectives from above the forest floor. Throughout the park, large staircases lead you into the forest below. Look up for a chance to spot eagles and other birds in the treetops. Can you see any nests? As you walk the trails, take a look for the large Devil’s club leaves or yew trees; both are rare to find in Surrey. Both of these plants have played important roles in medicine – a pharmacy in the forest! This local treasure is also the location of one of the Lower Mainland’s premier mountain bike parks. It offers a range of trails for various skill levels and ages, including some of Surrey’s most expert terrain. A small gravel parking lot is at Wallace Drive and Surrey Road. Street parking is available at various access points to the park including 114 Avenue, Currie Drive, and Gladstone Drive.
