Welcome to Redwood Park, one of Surrey's most spectacular nature destinations! Boasting a large forest of exotic trees, over 5 kilometres of scenic nature trails, a wheelchair-accessible playground and several rustic picnic shelters, the park has something for everyone to enjoy.

Park Features & Guidelines

The sloping lawn next to the parking lot is the perfect place to play! Enjoy the all-access playground and picnic shelters year-round from dawn until dusk. In the winter, the hills are great for sledding. Please note that the picnic shelters are non-reservable and operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

Head further west to explore a peaceful forest of tall trees, many of which can't be found anywhere else in Surrey. One highlight is the grove of mature Sierra Redwoods, the tallest tree species in the world. Want to learn more about the trees in the park? Take our self-guided tour! While you explore, please stay on the trails and keep your dogs on leash at all times.

History

The unique forest found at Redwood Park is a legacy of Peter and David Brown, twin brothers born to one of Surrey's earliest pioneering families. In 1893, their father gifted them this large plot of land, logged and ripe for farming. However, the brothers instead filled the vast space with their favourite trees from all around the world. Fully committed to their forest sanctuary, the eccentric duo built a treehouse where they lived in solitude until their deaths in 1949 and 1958. Today, a replica of their treehouse stands in the centre of the park.
