Tynehead Park is one of the largest parks in Surrey. It is home to the headwaters of the Serpentine River, a fish hatchery, a dog park, several trails and more.
Surrey’s Tynehead Park
Tynehead Regional Park covers over 600 acres of land in Surrey’s Guildford area. It contains multiple trails of different lengths, a few picnic areas, a hatchery, an off-leash dog park and more.
Trails to explore in Tynehead Park include the Hatchery Trail, Birch Grove Trail, Salmon Habitat Loop Trail and Tynehead Perimeter Trail. Out of the aforementioned paths, the Tynehead Perimeter Trail is likely the most popular. It’s over 4 km long. It is also the only one with a mostly paved surface. This trail leads around the park and is great for walking, running and even cycling.
The headwaters of Serpentine River are in the park, so trout and salmon can be seen spawning here. The Tynehead Fish Hatchery is a great place to learn about the fish and to view seasonal releases. The park is also home to owls, hawks, coyotes and other wildlife.
The dog park is a large, 6-acre area where folk can let their pets off-leash. It is mainly just an open grass field, but there is also a nice off-leash trail which makes for a fun walk or jog.
