Parks, Recreation & Culture Plans

Surrey is home to world class nature reserves, beaches, skate parks, forests, hockey rinks, soccer fields, recreation centres and bike trails. Our parks, recreation and culture facilities serve a growing population of over half a million people. Each year we add new parks and recreation facilities, and improve existing parks, recreation and culture facilities by adding and upgrading amenities. 

In addition to our 10-Year Strategic Plan, we have developed a variety of supplementary parks, recreation and culture strategies to guide the development of new amenities and facilities within the City. Explore some recent plans and strategies below.
