Top 5 Walking Trails

Exploring the city on your own two-feet is a great way to delve into Surrey’s intricate ecosystems within it’s parks. Enjoy year-round birding opportunities as over 200 species of birds call Surrey their home.

Crescent Beach Boardwalk

12160 Beecher Street

Looking for the perfect walk year-round? Look no further than the Crescent Beach Boardwalk, where you can enjoy the calm ocean waves and walk out onto the pier for great views. If you need to, you can make a pitstop at Hooked Fish Bar for some fish tacos and refuel.

Holland Park and Gardens

13248 Old Yale Road

Located in Surrey’s city centre, Holland Park is a lovely green space amongst the towering buildings of downtown. Flower lined pathways and water features make this city trail a gentle walk in the park.

The Semiahmoo Trail

3040 145A Street

This historic trail was originally a First Nations path and later used as overland entry route for those avoiding the mining licensing costs and miners head tax during the Gold Rush. It then grew to be the main road to the US border for wagons in the late 1800’s. Now, you’d never guess it was so widely used, as it’s currently a quiet walk through a wooded area that leads to the Nicomekl River.

The Serpentine Fen

4600 Block of King George Hwy

Open all year round, the Serpentine Fen is a great place to visit anytime, but it’s especially lovely in the Fall when most of the 130 different species of birds that reside in the area can be spotted. Bird watchers won’t want to miss this hour and a half walk through a nature reserve.

Bear Creek Park

3750 88 Avenue

The trails and pathways through Bear Creek Park can feel like a quiet walk in the park, but there is lots to see and do among the Redwoods: see salmon spawning, discover whimsical garden statues, or take a break at one of the sheltered picnic tables. Your littles will love a ride on the Bear Creek Park Train and make time for a quick round of mini-golf!
