Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve | Metro Vancouver Walks

Once upon a time, this 26 acre park belonged to the Godwin family. Tom and Elaine Godwin purchased the land in the late 1960’s and began a tree farm by planting hundreds of trees throughout the property. Sequoias, Redwoods and various Firs, just to name a few.

The Godwins also created a pond, where you may spot a rainbow trout or two.

In the mid-2010s the Godwin family gifted the property to the city of Surrey through Canada’s Ecological Gift Program, ensuring that the nature reserve was preserved and won’t be used for development.

A walk at Godwin is an enjoyable way to get away from people, while enjoying fresh air and taking in beautiful scenery. I look forward to visiting again, perhaps on a cool crisp Autumn day.
