Situated in the 368-hectare Surrey Bend Regional Park, one of the few remaining large non-diked areas on the lower Fraser River, the Surrey Bend Habitat enhancement project provides a diverse habitat for both fish and wildlife, while benefitting the community for years to come.

Construction of 2.2 kilometers of tidal channels provides 20,000 square meters of tidal slough habitat and 60,000 square meters of riparian habitat in an area of predominantly peat bog and dense vegetation. For the community, 1.5 kilometers of accessible trails create an immersive, natural viewing experience in the heart of an urban area.
