The Park Series is growing all the time, which I think is pretty fantastic. There are so many great green spaces around Metro Vancouver that are ideal for walks, hikes, picnics, and simply relaxing on the grass or sand. Crescent Park in South Surrey is another great suggestion that comes to us from Barbara of the Love Blog.

How to get there: You can take the 351 Crescent Beach bus (same one you’d take to get to Crescent Beach or Blackie Spit) or driving along Highway 99 turn off on King George Highway heading South. From KGH turn onto Crescent Road and it’s between 132nd and 128th.

Features: Barbara pretty much sums it all up, “there is a wonderful duck pond in the middle of this lush park. Playgrounds for kids. Big fields for soccer & baseball on each side. Picnic areas. Big trails for walking in the trees. It is a very lovely park. My family live just a block away and we walk there a lot when I visit. The pond has some turtles now, which I hope to get some pics of next time.”

Notes: I have only been to the park once and that was during a high school cross country meet. The best thing about being in cross country in high school is that instead of running around a track you’re outdoors with fresh air, the smell of cedar trees, soft mulch to run on and mud to cake on your shoes – it’s always worth it though.
