Leisure Access Program

The City of Surrey's Leisure Access Program provides an opportunity for permanent city residents in financial need to participate in Parks, Recreation and Culture activities at a very low cost. 

Program Benefits

The Leisure Access Program provides the following benefits to Surrey residents who qualify — and don't forget, the City offers many free programs on a monthly basis. To have these opportunities delivered directly to your inbox each month, sign up for Recreation Opportunities ENews.

Drop-In Admission discounts

  • One-year Full-Facility pass for Children (0 to 12) , Youth (13 to 18) and Seniors (60+) valid at all City of Surrey facilities
  • 75% discount on single admission or monthly or yearly passes for Adults (19 to 59)

Registered Program discounts

  • 75% discount on most registered courses
    • Maximum discount during year-long enrollment:
      • $500 per family member 18 years and younger
      • $250 per family member 19 years and older

An example for a registered program

  • If you register in a course that costs $100, as an LAP participant, you will pay $25. The balance of $75 will be paid by LAP. The $75 will also be applied to your discount limit. For a child with an annual discount limit of $500, this will leave $425 in discount the child can apply to other programs.
  • The discount on your drop-in admissions (yearly, monthly or swipe passes) does not affect your registered program discount limit.
