Totems in Stanley Park, Vancouver

Surrey

Bounded by the Fraser River on the north and Boundary Bay on the south there are plenty of opportunities for water activities in the City of Surrey. A popular locale is Crescent Beach which offers a little tranquility and a quaint beach village atmosphere as you take a stroll along the walkways. Next to the beach area is Blackies Spit, one of the best bird watching areas in Canada, with almost 200 species of birds recorded over the different seasons. The sand bars are a favourite resting place for harbour seals and their pups.

Agri-tourism is growing everywhere and that includes Surrey. Visit Bose Farms Corn Maze, the Honeybee Centre, a blueberry farm, do some wine tasting, go on the Ale Trail.

Golfing, fishing, trails for walking and cycling. Parks galore. Surrey Arts Centre offers theatre and musical productions, plus changing art exhibitions and original artworks by local artists. Visit the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition and the Surrey Museum and so much more.

Location

Conveniently located on the United States/Canada border and is served by two border crossings – Peace Arch/Douglas Border Crossing (end of Highway 99) and the Pacific Border Crossing (end of Highway 15). There are several main routes to access Surrey by road. From east and west Hwy 1; from the north east Hwy 15; north west Hwy 91 and Hwy 99. Hwy 10 crosses Surrey.

A Step Back in Time

When European people first came to this area in the early 1800s, the Semiahmoo and Kwantlen First Nations People had already been present for more than 6,000 years. Local history and heritage have been preserved through the sacred places of the First Nations, trails and buildings of the last century.

Agriculture was a big part of life in Surrey in the 1800s and remains a major industry in the region today. Homesteads were built and communities grew. Today, Surrey has a population of 460,000 people and is the 12th largest city in Canada and the second largest in BC.

Over 50 sites in the city have been designated Historic Places.
