Nature Trails Brochure Flipbook

Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest Park Sunnyside Acres was one of the first designated urban forest parks in Canada, thanks to Surrey residents voting to protect it in 1988. Once successful, an inspired group of residents established the Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, an organization dedicated to the ongoing preservation of the forest. Today, they continue to work closely with Surrey Parks to protect, promote and enhance this urban forest. After it was logged in the early 1900s, the forest was left to regenerate on its own, resulting in a diverse community of plants and animals. From the colourful vine maples in fall to the rare rattlesnake plantain orchid in summer, there are special sights to see in every season! Sunnyside Acres is home to black- tailed deer, coyotes, Douglas squirrels and many different birds. A large network of trails, including several loop trails, is used by visitors and wildlife alike. Trails wind their way across boardwalks, past streams and through thick forest understory. There is a trail for everyone, from the Wally Ross universal access trail (0.8 km) to more rugged nature trails such as the Douglas-fir and Moss trails. South of 24 Avenue, there are more walking trails and forested bike trails that border South Surrey Athletic Park’s many amenities. Check out the soccer fields, a spray park, an ice arena, a skate park, and a recreation centre.
