Keery Park is located on the western edge of Campbell Heights and was named after John Keery who served on municipal council for 20 years between 1894 and 1928. In 2021 the Keery family established a fund through SurreyCares Community Foundation to contribute towards amenities at the park, including building a loop trail through the natural area of the park.
the City of Surrey manages over 800 parks. More than 200 parks have active amenities such as sports fields, sport courts, playgrounds, community gardens or picnic areas and over 600 parks protect natural areas, open space, and biodiversity as part of the larger green infrastructure network.
