Welcome to Surrey! There is so much to see, eat, and do while you’re here.
Throughout April 22 to May 31, we invite you to stroll the streets of Cloverdale and partake in our Tourism Challenge Scavenger Hunt.
To receive your stamps, you will need to uncover the secret phrase by solving ten riddles, each one leading you to a new location throughout the area. At every new location, you will find a portion of the secret phrase either taped to the storefront window or, in the case of a few murals, written directly on the wall.
Solve all ten riddles listed below, discover the full phrase and make your way to the Museum of Surrey to earn your stamps. While you’re there, you can earn an ADDITIONAL two stamps for visiting the Musuem of Surrey. That means your excursion through Cloverdale could earn you a total of 5 stamps!
Please note that while the businesses of Cloverdale are excited to have you, we kindly ask you respect the employees and other patrons in the area.
Your journey begins at Hawthorne Square (176th street and 57th avenue).
Fun Fact: the statue in front of you, the Cowgirl, is part of an art installation entitled Moments in Time, which consists of three separate granite sculptures strategically placed along Cloverdale’s main street. The artist, Paul Slipper created each piece in celebration of a different aspect of Cloverdale’s historic past. According to the City of Surrey, the Cowgirl “celebrates the enduring tradition of the Cloverdale Rodeo, first started in 1945.”
