South Surrey offers its residents an unparalleled quality of life. A bright and sunny climate, excellent schools, premier recreation facilities, golf courses, beaches, parks, shopping, dining and easy access to the US border.
All this and more draws hundreds of couples, families and empty-nesters to the area every year.
Currently residing in windswept Ocean Park we take pride in our sea breeze, old trees, easy beach access, funky shops and boutiques and the vibrant arts and culture scene here but each community is diverse and special in its own way.
Neighbourhoods like Crescent Beach / Ocean Park, Elgin, Sunnyside, Rosemary, Morgan Creek and the most recent development of the Grandview area all provide families with a broad selection of housing styles and natural features.
Local amenities include Save-On-foods, Natures Fare, Choices Markets, Thrifty Foods, Superstore, Chan’s Market and Safeway. In addition, The Shops at Morgan Crossing offer a wide variety of fitness facilities, dental/medical, restaurants and boutique shops for fashion, family, beauty and home décor as well as the flagship stores Chapters/Indigo, Home Depot, Wal Mart, Best Buy and London Drugs.
Just south of 16th Ave sits the seaside community of White Rock. Only 10 minutes to the US Border and also offering diverse housing options. White Rock boasts 8km of viewpoints over the shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay plus a plethora of funky boutiques, restaurants, cafes, gelato shops and water recreation.
South Surrey Stays Active
The South Surrey Recreation Centre and White Rock Community Centre are only minutes from each other and offer indoor and outdoor development programs for moms and tots, children, teens, adults and seniors. Parks include the Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest a 321 acre wooded park full of walking and biking trails. Also only minutes from each other are the Elgin Heritage Park, Redwood Park, Crescent Park and the Super popular 1001 steps above Crescent Beach.
With the Best Schools in BC
South Surrey is widely known to have the best schools in BC and with 800-1,000 new students moving to the area every year our School Board is working hard to access funding to build more Elementary and Secondary schools to meet the need. Elementary schools include Rosemary Heights, Morgan, Semiahmoo Trail, Sunnyside, Chantrell Creek, Crescent Park, Ocean Cliff, Ray Shepherd, Bayridge, H.T. Thrift, Jessie Lee and Pacific Heights. Secondary options include Elgin Park, Semiahmoo, Earl Marriot and the new Grandview Heights. With a high level of professional residents in the area many choose to send their kids to Southridge, a K-12 private school serving students in the South Surrey White Rock area as well as some as far away as Richmond and Ladner.
Plus Really Beautiful Beaches
But the beaches of South Surrey and White Rock are what makes this community so desirable. More sunshine per year than the surrounding area plus kilometers of beach walking, ocean views and wildlife a visit to Crescent Beach, Blackie Spit, Mud Bay and White Rocks West and East Beach as well as waterfront promenade and pier area are a must see.
Easy access to parks, beaches and the best schools in the region make South Surrey the perfect place to raise a family but what makes this area truly special is the people. Come join us! We love living here! Want to learn more about South Surrey?
