Summer Lovin’

With the sun out and about, South Surrey is bursting with loads of fun activities. With great picks for family fun, picnic places, and staying cool, you can make the best of the coming days. Here’s a list of must-see places to soak up some vitamin D and enjoy the best that summer in Surrey has to offer.

Peace Arch Provincial Park (Highway 99 Peace Arch Border Crossing) is 9 hectares of beautiful land available to picnic and enjoy the views of Semiahmoo Bay. This park includes the Peace Arch, the first structure of its kind in the world. This landmark was dedicated in 1920 to commemorate peace between Canada and the United States. This part has lots of space for walking and picnicking both outside and inside at the shelter available. Next time you go across the border, stop by, stretch your legs, enjoy the amazing scenery and reflect on a thriving cross-country relationship.

Sandcastle Bowl Bar & Grill (1938 152 Street) is South Surrey’s only destination for bowling, food and fun. Along with open bowling, Sandcastle also does League bowling, corporate events and parties, meaning you can incorporate this activity into almost every aspect of your life! With comfortable couches and a lounge atmosphere, this is a great place to bring friends and bowl well into the evening in a relaxed, entertaining place.

Considered the best beach in all of Surrey, Crescent Beach (12160 Beecher Street) has it all. Enjoy swimming, beach volleyball and scenic views along the water and nature trails. At low tide, comb the beach for water critters, or sit and relax at the beachside restaurants that dot the shore. The best beach access points are at Beecher Street, Sullivan Street, and Target Street. Crescent Beach dates back to 1909, when it was originally a public beach and resort area, complete with hotel and train station. While these sports are no longer around, the original dikes are used a waterfront pathway, and the beach remains a popular spot. Be sure to catch the sunset here; it’s one of the best spots to view it in the Lower Mainland!
