Street in Cloverdale

A mix of historic and newer neighbourhoods, Cloverdale is where the past and future meet.

Welcome to Cloverdale

Cloverdale is the historic centre of Surrey, reflected in its unique western and railroad character and boasts one of Surrey's most recognizable main street. While the preserved historic ambiance can be reflected throughout the town centre, it has grown into a bustling hub of commercial activity due in large part to its strategic location and connections to the railway.

 

Growth & Development

Areas within the Cloverdale Town Centre like Clayton Heights have gone through significant growth to develop newer residential areas. To support area residents, new facilities and amenities are popping up regularly, including the highly anticipated Clayton Community Centre. 

With the approved SkyTrain expansion, three new stations are planned for Cloverdale, connecting Surrey to Langley.

Today, Cloverdale, which is home to the Surrey Museum and many other heritage sites, unique heritage buildings, and a quaint "Main Street," retains much of its historic ambiance.

 

Local Area Highlights

Every year, Cloverdale is home to the largest Canada Day celebration in Western Canada, welcoming families for free music, activities and food.

The small town charm of Cloverdale attracts movie and TV makers and has served as a backdrop for shows like Smallville, Supernatural and the new Sabrina series.

Since 1945, Cloverdale has hosted the annual Cloverdale Rodeo that now takes places at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds.

Cloverdale's History

Settled in the mid to late 1800s, Cloverdale has grown from a largely rural and agricultural community. The area's name of Cloverdale evolved from Clover Valley, inspired by the clover growing throughout the valley. Developed along the railway tracks, the business area grew to become an important railway and commercial hub.
