The City of Abbotsford has approximately 660 hectares of natural lands and open space, which include forests, shrublands, meadows, wetlands and riparian corridors throughout the community. These areas provide opportunities for residents to enjoy their neighbourhoods as “nature intended” as well as providing ecological connections and critical habitat for numerous species of local wildlife.
For Abbotsford, offering the best of both worlds means providing a little bit of “green” to our increasingly urbanized environment. The City of Abbotsford fosters many green spaces throughout its residential neighbourhoods. Parks join neighbourhoods together and provide meeting places for young and old alike. Easy access to amenities like trails, restrooms and picnic facilities make Abbotsford’s urban green spaces a destination for active outdoor exploration.
