Surrey’s Story

Surrey’s Story

Surrey, BC is one of the liveliest and fastest-growing cities in Metro Vancouver. With vast natural beauty, a flourishing culinary scene and cutting-edge recreational facilities, it’s a city just waiting to be discovered.

Surrey is a diverse community rich in arts, culture, history, heritage and home to some of the largest and most vibrant festivals in Canada. We embody a unique fusion of urban and rural, embracing both our buzzing urban centres and the stunning natural landscapes they’re nestled amongst.

With over 6,000 acres of green space that spans scenic, coastal landscapes to thriving, urban forests and everything inbetween, Surrey is THE place to connect with nature. Explore our city’s extensive farming community (which makes up one-third of our land use!), roam along woodland trails, or wander the winding pathways of our many majestic gardens...

Surrey’s rich, natural landscape provides countless recreational opportunities, like kayaking along the Nicomekl River, paddle boarding at Crescent Beach, and biking, hiking or walking our many parks and trails.

In addition, our state-of-the-art recreational facilities play host to numerous local, provincial, national, and international sporting events, such as the Canada Cup at Softball City and the SX International Cup!

Bearing six unique neighbourhoods within its city boundaries, Surrey is a great place to live, work, stay, and play. That’s what we celebrate daily. And that’s what we want to help you discover!

Behind every new discovery is a story - a journey, an experience, the start of something special… We’re proud to be telling Surrey’s story. It’s one we’re excited about, because it’s constantly growing and evolving. Now, we’re inviting our visitors to be a part of Surrey’s story… because our big, burgeoning city is the starting point for something extraordinary.
