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, flowers 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.

Hosting Events at Bear Creek
Events are held regularly at the Bear Creek Pavilion, which is available for rent. We've also seen weddings take place in the Bear Creek Gardens, which is open from dawn 'til dusk, year round. In the summer you can discover Bear Creek Park through a variety of free programs for all ages, hosted by City staff.
Please note Bear Creek Park is at capacity and we are not accepting applications for any large-scale events, including run/walk fundraisers. Learn about other parks where you can host a public event.
Destination Sports Facility
The future Bear Creek Park Athletics Centre will replace the existing track at Bear Creek Park, elevating the facility to international standards. A new synthetic turf field will be installed in the track infield which can host high level soccer and football.
The improvements will accommodate a full range of track and field sports and include a covered grandstand with permanent seating for 2,200 spectators that is integrated into the existing park.
The new grandstand will include team changerooms, officials rooms, equipment storage space, ticketing office, public washrooms and concession facilities.
The City presented the results of a feasibility study at a public open house in October 2019. View the presentation boards to learn more
Public engagement will begin summer 2021. Construction will begin in 2022.
