The Syéxw Chó:leqw Adventure Park opened in September 2018 to serve the local trails and recreation community. The Park is located on the traditional land and territory of Sq’ewá:lxw First Nation. The name was chosen due to the scree slope at the north end of the Park where large rocks have been falling from the mountain for thousands of years. The Park was constructed with the assistance and expertise of First Journey Trails.
The Park includes 4,000 metres of walking and cycling trails, a bike skills park, viewing platforms, a 90,000 square foot playground, as well as other supporting facilities. Visitors can also enjoy the many art installations throughout the park in the form of mural paintings and wood sculptures. There are several carvings in the park, see if you can spot them all!
“Playground of our ancestors” was the inspiration for the park as our family and community have utilized this land since time immemorial. Community members used to hunt, fish and harvest cedar bark within the park. They also retreated to pit houses for shelter and protection from coastal raiders coming up the Fraser River.
