The 32 hectare (80 acre) Redwood Park is the result of two brothers who were considered eccentric at the time because they lived in a tree house and were always planting trees and seeking out seeds.
The brothers planted trees from around the world throughout their parcel of land. They collected seeds from Europe, Asia and North America and planted trees like Walnut, Elm, Cedar, Maple, Fir, Oak, Cypress, Birch and Sequoia.
In total there are over 30+ different species of trees growing in the park today. The most famous of the trees is the grove of Giant Redwoods.
To explore the Redwood Park there are a series of gravel walking trails. The trails explore the various groves of trees, a meadow and grass fields. The forest is thick and lush in sections with the forest floor covered in large groups of ferns and salal.
The loop route through the Redwood Park measures about 5 kilometres. The main trail and connecting trails lead to the tree house the brothers once lived in, a playground, picnic day use area, parking lot and washrooms.
