Friendly Reminders for a Safe and Fun Summer in Surrey

Holland Park

June 21, 2017

With summer officially upon us, here are few simple reminders to ensure everyone can enjoy the outdoors in Surrey this summer.

  • Smoking and consumption of alcohol are prohibited in all parks, including athletic parks, recreational facilities and parking lots.
  • Do not dispose of cigarettes on grass, in parks or out of car windows.
  • Open burning is not permitted anywhere in the city, this includes outdoor fireplaces, chimney's and campfires.
  • The warm weather and longer days bring more people outdoors. With more social gatherings in backyards, please be courteous to your neighbours.
  • Please remember that dogs are only permitted off-leash in Surrey's 10 designated offleash parks, including the dog beach area of Blackie Spit.
  • The temperature in a parked car, even in the shade with the windows partly open, can rapidly reach a level that will seriously harm or even kill your pet.
  • Please be aware of the summer sprinkling regulations and be mindful to conserve water.


City of Surrey By-law Officers are on patrol 7 days a week and are available to deal with any bylaw related issue by contacting 604-591-4370. The City of Surrey also has additional park patrols during the peak summer season.
