Hit the beach

Dip your toes in the brisk water at Crescent Beach. Ensure you are staying safe in and around the water. Bring your pup and enjoy the dog swimming area (at high tide only). Remember, the fire danger rating is extreme so leave the barbeque at home for all park visits.

Prefer to find a quieter spot? Explore hundreds of Surrey parks to find a quiet place to relax.

Beat the heat, go for a skate

Had enough summer heat? Head to one of our arenas for a public skate or some drop-in stick and puck. Check holiday hours and drop-in schedules to find a time.

Take one last dip in our outdoor pools

Nothing beats jumping into a fresh outdoor pool on a hot summer day. Our outdoor pools are open until September 5, so it's your last chance to dive in!

Admission is free. See pool locations.

Visit the Historic Stewart Farm

Drop by for coffee or join an apple cider making demonstration. Or explore the grounds on your own: follow onsite storyboards to see the garden, building exteriors and a glimpse inside the pole barn and the vintage farm equipment housed there.
