Serpentine Fen Park - also referred to as the Serpentine Wildlife Area - is a protected wetland-marsh eco system popular for birdwatching and walking trails in the region of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

The Serpentine Marsh is a popular stop over destination for migratory birds. The marsh measures 150 hectares (370 acres) and is also home to mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles and wetland flora and fauna.

The wetland is a fresh water marsh located on the banks of the Serpentine River bordering, both, Hwy 99 and King George Highway. Caught in the bend of the river is a small salt water marsh area. The marsh is divided into sections by a network of dykes.

The trail system in the park explores the dykes. The main dyke trail is a loop route measuring just over 3 kilometres and leads to 3 wooden viewing towers ideal for birdwatching. Two of the towers are covered and one is an open air tower. A picnic day use area is located near the main entrance on 44th Avenue.

There are over 130 + bird species sighted to live and/or visit the Serpentine Wildlife Area. Some of the bird species include the Northern Pintail, Northern Shoveler, American Wigeon, Great Blue Heron, cormorant, Canada Goose, Green-winged Teal, Mallard, Bufflehead, Common Merganser, Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, Cooper’s Hawk, Red-winged Blackbird, Barn Owl and Short-eared Owl.
