"In 1988 Sunnyside Acres was declared an "urban forest" and is being managed for intrinsic values. This park is 130 hectares of tranquil forest inhabited by a wealth of animal and plant life. Logged early last century, Sunnyside is a natural second growth forest. Compare this to Green Timbers which is reforested, or Redwood Park where exotic species replaced the native ones. Birds, Coyotes, and Black-tailed Deer still live in this forest. You may also see the rare orchid, Rattlesnake-plantain. Please don't pick them!"
