David and Peter Brown's Tree House (Replica) in Redwood Park, Surrey

Image from Redwood Park activity in Things to do in Surrey

Redwood Park was created by twin brothers David and Peter Brown who lived in a tree house (the original was torn down in 1986).

The story of the twin brothers who created the park can be seen beside a tree house not unlike the one they once lived in: "History of Redwood Park: Redwood Park was originally owned by twin brothers Peter and David Brown, who came to the Hazelmere valley in 1878. They lived here from 1893 to 1958. Their love of trees resulting in the planting and raising of some 32 species from Europe, Asia and North America, including a beautiful grove of Redwoods for which the park is named. After the two previous homes were destroyed by fire, the brothers built and lived in a tree house which was reached by means of a ramp. By 1986 the original house had become unstable and was removed. The building that now stands on the site, although different in design, is a reminder of the brother's lifestyle. The trees and native flora that make up Redwood Park and are a living memorial to the Pioneer Brown family."
