Worried about keeping the kids entertained this Spring Break? Plan adventures that the whole family will love. Here are some of our favourite ideas for the best family-friendly things to do in Surrey this Spring Break.

Hit the Beach
Who says the beach is just for summer? Rain or shine, there’s so much to discover at the beach. Head to Crescent Beach, grab a coffee or an ice cream, or a coffee AND an ice cream, and go exploring. Keep your eyes peeled for crabs and clams, and colourful pieces of beach glass.

Go for a Walk
Surrey’s parks are patiently waiting to keep your adventurous spirit alive and thriving even when the temperature is a little bit chilly. From discovering a new trail to admiring the change of seasons (watch for cherry blossoms), bust out your best toque and layer-up, because we’re sharing some of our favourite walks in Surrey.

Go Golfing
Hit the greens with the family at Birdies and Buckets. This Par 3 9-hole course is suitable for budding golfers of any ability. The facility also features a driving range with fun targets for teaching opportunities.

Go for a Bike Ride
Surrey’s called the City of Parks for a reason. Wherever you find yourself in the region, there’s no shortage of nature trails and natural greenery – and there’s no better way of experiencing them than by bicycle!  Surrey’s bike trails range from short and leisurely to long and challenging, so whether you’re out for a casual spin or bent on a serious trek, there’s a route to suit your fancy. Here’s a quick taste of the trails.

Go Bird Watching
Did you know that Surrey is home to a number of parks that provide year-round birdwatching? In fact, there are over 200 unique species of birds to see in Surrey! Make a checklist of common birds to look for and head out on a birdwatching adventure. It’s an ideal way to appreciate Surrey’s winged wildlife in their natural habitat and get a little exercise at the same time. Here’s a little information about where to go and what to look for.

Hunt for Treasure
If you haven’t tried Geocaching yet, it’s a great way to discover Surrey’s 600 parks and green spaces! This fun and free activity involves following clues on the Geocache App to find expertly hidden treasures. Open up your treasure, mark your name as a finder, and replace the treasure inside with a new gift for the next finder. We’ve heard that the Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve in Guildford has some cool caches.
