Sweat It Out

Enjoy exercise but tired of the monotony of lifting heavy things and putting them back down? Try something more dynamic right here in Surrey, BC. Cloverdale has some awesome physical activities that’ll keep you sweaty and exhilarated.

Boasting an 8,000 square foot facility, Project Climbing (119-17828 65a Avenue) offers bouldering for all age and experience levels. Every possible wall angle is available for you to test your endurance, grip strength, and mental fortitude. Their staff is full of experienced climbers to show you the ropes and make sure that everyone is totally safe.

Before you move on to the next activity, refuel yourself at Jake the Caveman (106-19289 Langley Bypass). Jake’s diner opened up earlier this year as a passion project and that passion comes through in his delicious barbecue menu. Get your protein fix with the barbecue chicken or carb-load with the bulgogi and rice, then hit the next spot feeling recharged.

Featuring basketball/ball hockey courts and an action sports plaza suitable for skateboards and BMX bikes, the Cloverdale Youth Park (17816 64 Avenue) will keep you busy. The action sports plaza has various ramps, grind rails, platforms, and stairs for you to practice any and all tricks you’ve been wanting to perfect. The outdoor courts are perfect for pick-up games, and also host basketball tournaments throughout the summer if you’re looking for some stiffer competition.
