Just 35 minutes southeast of downtown Vancouver by car or the SkyTrain rapid transit link, fast-growing Surrey is as loaded with things to do as it is accessible.
BC's second-largest city caters to those seeking natural, sporty diversions with more than 600 parks and greenbelts, affordable golf courses, and spectator sports facilities. With more than 2300ha/5680ac of designated parkland, Surrey has earned the nickname of "The City of Parks."
Prefer indoor activities? Go shopping at Surrey's variety-laden malls and shopping plazas, or visit local museums, art galleries, and heritage sites. With exotic dining options and multicultural festivals, this diverse community stimulates, educates, and satisfies all year round.
