Redwood Park

Redwood Park

Located in South Surrey, Redwood Park is a family-friendly nature sanctuary that offers a wide variety of activities. Whether you want to relax by the river or take a scenic walk through the forest, there is something for everyone. It is one of Surrey’s most popular natural attractions. The park was originally owned by the Brown family, who were one of Surrey’s early pioneers. The Browns shared a love of trees, so they began replanting timbered land. Today, the park is packed with amazing trees.

 

The park’s main attraction is a replica of a tree house built by Peter and David Brown. In addition, there are dozens of miniature houses scattered throughout the park. Most of these homes are secluded in the branches of the trees, while others are simple dwellings crafted from wood or other natural materials. Some fairy houses are large and grand, while others are simple and whimsical. They’re all decorated with bright colors and ornaments fit for a fairy princess.

The park also features a playground that includes a slide and a ramp, as well as ride-on digging toys. There’s a sand area, a wheelchair-accessible playground, and a sloping lawn. It’s also home to a few rustic picnic shelters. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

The park is also home to the world’s largest stand of Giant Redwood trees north of the 49th parallel. It’s a great place for a walk, a picnic, or a day of sledding in the winter. Its trails explore a range of groves of trees, from grass fields to a meadow. The park has a large collection of exotic trees, including Chinese Chestnut, Walnut, and Sequoia.

 

Among the most exciting things to see at Redwoods Park are the hundreds of enchanting little wooden houses that have been crafted for fairy visitors. Each house is unique, ranging from simple to elaborate. Some of the homes are made from natural materials, while others have been created by whimsy-loving children. Several of the houses are painted in bright colors, while other houses are more simple.

 

The park also features a two-storey treehouse. During the park’s heyday, the treehouse was a home for the Brown brothers. However, the treehouse burned down several times. The park has since rebuilt its treehouse, which stands in the middle of the forest.

 

The Redwoods Park washrooms are clean and quiet. They have a drinking fountain that is grooved to resemble wood. This is a nice touch, especially if you’re in the park with children. If you’re in a group, be sure to read the Park Activity Guidelines to plan your visit.

 

In addition to the many trails, there are a number of other interesting features at Redwoods Park. The park’s Fairy Kingdom, which is accessed by a wooded trail, is home to an entire village of whimsy-loving creatures. Those who want a closer look can climb up the stairs to the treehouse, which is open to the public.
