Elgin Heritage Park is a historic site, walking trail and birdwatching destination located on the banks of the Nicomekl River in the community of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

The main feature of the Elgin Heritage Park is the historic site named Stewart Farm. The land was originally cultivated by John Hardy in the 1880s. In 1894 John Stewart then deeded the property and built a Victorian farmhouse and the various outbuildings now sitting on the property.

Visitors to the heritage property will be greeted by hosts dressed in period costumes who provide an interpretive tour of the grounds. Part of the historic site includes a parking lot, day use picnic area and washrooms for visitors.

Stewart Farm Historic Site includes a farmhouse, barn, bunk house, root cellar and threshing shed. Onsite there are historic artifacts, orchard, furniture, photos and agricultural farming tools and machinery.

For those interested in the self guided walking trails there is a main parking area which links to the main trailhead entrance to the trails. The 3 kilometres of trails follow a network of dykes and raised boardwalk trails leading to views overlooking the river, wetland and some tidal flats.

The area around the tidal flats, wetland and river are popular destinations for birdwatching.
