Spend time with loved ones and build closeness among family members.

Get together

One of the most effective ways to bond as a family is simply spending time together. The easiest way to incorporate this into a busy daily schedule is to eat dinner together as a family, preferably at a table with minimal technological distractions to maximize conversation and engagement.

City of Surrey adds into the fun by offering free Family Nights at various recreation centres. You can join us for scavenger hunts, seasonal themed crafts, face painting, games and other interactive activities at various recreation centres throughout Surrey.

Get artsy

Art is a great way to get the creative juices flowing for the whole family. From clay sculpting to cut-out crafts, parent participation art classes are a fun way to connect.

Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey Civic Theatres, Museum of Surrey and Historic Stewart Farm also offer some great family events and programs.

Join your children in discovering art and creating life-lasting memories and skills!

Get active

We all know about the importance of physical fitness so why not do it together as a family? Staying active as a family means that you get to work on your health and your relationship at the same time!

There are many activities to explore. From badminton to drop-in sports there is something for everyone.

Get social

Spending time with other families is a great way to socialize and bond as a family. The City of Surrey offers some great family fun events. For a full listing view our events page.
