The park is located at 5780 182 Street.

The City of Surrey’s fall releaf program sees groups planting native trees and shrubs in Surrey parks.

Since 1991, tens of thousands of trees have been planted throughout Surrey by thousands of volunteers, community groups, schools, businesses and families.

Community plantings are held every Saturday in October.
