Tynehead Regional ParkTynehead Regional ParkTynehead Regional Park<div class="ExternalClassE8544DAD2C0D42F6A5D0AF6986113E78"><p>Tynehead means 'head of the Serpentine'. This park helps to conserve part of the headwaters of the Serpentine River watershed that goes through much of Surrey. Here, you can experience the beauty of nature along trails through mixed forest, meadow, and river's edge. Enjoy vie​ws of the park and its significant salmon (spawning and rearing) habitat from the viewpoints on Hatchery and Trillium Trails. Cyclists can ride on the Tynehead Perimeter Trail and make connections to bike paths outside of the park.</p></div>291206792,
