Tour Information

The Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve, or Godwin Park for short, is a Park that Mr. And Mrs. Godwin donated to the City of Surrey on May 27, 2017. It's fairly new to the public therefore not many people know about it. We want to change that and that's why we are making a walking tour app so that you can be introduced to this great park! In this app, the students of Surrey Christian School want to introduce you to all the main attractions, and maybe learn a little something on the way through.
