About Kwomais Point Park
Kwomais Point Park is a spectacular park in southwest Surrey perched on the top of the bluffs above Semiahmoo Bay. The park offers stunning views across the bay to Tsawwassen and beyond to Vancouver Island and the San Juan Islands. There is a new viewing platform in the west of the park, just south of 14 Avenue and 126A Street.
The park is also highlighted by its mature forest, with many large Grand Fir, Douglas Fir and Big Leaf Maples, some of which are over 80 years old. There's a lovely walking path that runs through the park, between 126A Street and 128 Street, as well as a number of natural area trails that loop through the forest.
Parking is available, with access from 128 Street. Adjacent to the parking lot you'll find the recently renovated Kwomais Lodge and Sanford Hall, both beautiful heritage facilities that offer a range of programming as well as hall rental. Nearby, a labyrinth and plaza have recently been constructed.
In November 2008, Surrey City Council approved the Kwomais Point Park Master Plan (PDF. 45MB). The highlights of the plan included the preservation of Kwomais Lodge and Sanford Hall as community facilities for public use, and a range of amenities, some of which have been completed.
Additional improvements to the parking lot are anticipated, in conjunction with the redevelopment of the intersection of 128th Street and Marine Drive. See the plan for the upgrades (PDF. New window.). Additional view points are also in the plan. It's expected that the implementation of the Master Plan will take several years to complete.
