The City of Parks

Surrey has worked hard to create a City Centre with an abundance of green parks, walkways and bike paths. With over 400 parks, the City of Surrey is known as the ‘City of Parks’ and that stays true for its beautifully green city centre. Hop on a bike and tour the City Centre’s bikeway system or bring your dog along for a walk in any one of our stunning, local nature trails.
