Bear Creek Park
Explore Bear Creek Park in Whalley.
Dawn until Dusk
Bear Creek Park, next to the Surrey Arts Centre, features an outdoor pool and waterpark, a large playground, flower gardens, and the Bear Creek Miniature Train. It also features football and soccer fields, a running track, a fenced-in dog off-leash area, and a skatepark.
You'll also find outdoor fitness equipment for cardio and strength training, nature trails and paved walking paths. Just a short walk down from the trail, catch a glimpse of spawning salmon or trout.
Bear Creek Park is a great place to host a picnic. There are 7 picnic shelters in Bear Creek Park:
- 2 located east of the playground
- 2 located west of 140 Street parking lot
- 2 located northwest of the running track
- 1 located southeast of the pavilion
Picnic shelters are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you’re having a picnic or hosting an event in a Surrey park please review the Park Activity Guidelines.
