Blackie Spit Park, Surrey
(4.4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Blackie Spit Park which lies on the western edge of South Surrey has several trails, beaches and other amenities. The region is best known for bird watching as thousands numbering over 200 different species migrate through the area each year during Fall and Spring. The beauty of the region and the spectacular views bring hundreds of people to the shores of Blackie Spit Park where it teaches visitors about the sensitive salt marsh ecosystem and provides a place to experience and enjoy.

Blackie Spit Park located in the Crescent Beach borough of Surrey, British Columbia lies on the shores of Boundary Bay. The unique flatlands habitat sees over two hundred species of birds living around or migrating through annually.

The Park is named after Walter Blackie who was also New Westminster's first blacksmith and previously owned this section of Crescent Beach. The Spit is composed mostly of gravel with grassy and marshy brush further up from the shoreline. Its unique composition was formed during the last ice age and shaped by centuries of erosion from the tidal activity of Boundary Bay.

The Spit is best known for its spectacular birdwatching although the Park also encompasses several trails, off-leash dog areas, gardens and other amenities as well as the Savenye Environmentally Sensitive Area which is off limits to visitors. The Park is popular throughout the year but is most busy during the Spring (March to May) and Fall (August to October) migrations where many birds take refuge during their long journeys up and down the coast. Species such as Eagles, Ducks, Herons and others can be spotted in the region year round. Other wildlife such as seals can be spotted in the sand bars not far from shore and a multitude of other land and ocean creatures call Blackie Spit Park home.
