#1. Recreational Facilities
South Surrey has so much to offer including swimming pools, an arena, an arts centre, many sports fields and a skatepark to name a few. If you want to get out get active and be a part of the community or flex your art muscles, South Surrey has so much to offer.
#2. Parks and Beaches There are many great parks, playgrounds, and walking trails in the South Surrey and White Rock area. One of my favourites is Crescent Beach. It’s not only a great spot to go for a walk along the seaside but also a great place to have a picnic, go for a swim in the summer or even enjoy an ice cream or meal at the local restaurants and cafes. Crescent Beach also has its own Swim Club that is popular with families for swimming lessons during the summertime. If you are looking for some beach time with your dog, Crescent beach also has a dog park at Blackies Spit.
South Surrey is growing with many families moving into the area and the demand is high for schools. With the high demand, schools have been a little crowded so a brand new high school was built in 2021 along with some new elementary schools and more on the way. t Programs that are offered here in Surrey and specifically South Surrey are French Immersion, an Arts Program, Montessori, and an Outdoor Program. South Surrey also has some great private schools including Southridge, White Rock Christian, and Star of the Sea.

#6 The Weather
If you like a mild climate, you don't want to shovel a lot of snow, and you don't want extremely hot summers, South Surrey is the place to be! South Surrey and White Rock receive about 20% more sunshine than Vancouver, resulting in a little less rain in this somewhat rainy corner of British Columbia.
