There’s nothing better than taking a refreshing dip to cool off on a hot summer day.
Whether you’re on the lookout for the perfect gift for a loved one, or ready for a full-on shopping spree, White Rock/South Surrey has no shortage of great shopping options.
While there are no shortages of parks around the Semiahmoo Peninsula to enjoy the greenery of trees, flowers and plants, there is one place where one might not expect to find such foliage growing – on the wall of a South Surrey building.
The ‘living wall’ began to take root last fall on the south exterior wall of 1815 152 St., home to the South Surrey RCMP and Semiahmoo Library.
As if sunny beaches, world-class shopping and a burgeoning arts scene weren’t enough to make the Semiahmoo Peninsula a sought-after destination, a brand-new, innovative facility has thrust our community onto the world stage.
It’s called the Centre for Active Living, located beside Centennial Arena, and is designed to focus on prevention and management of chronic disease through fitness and recovery programs.
The centre is the product of a unique partnership between the Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, Fraser Health, The City of White Rock, Peace Arch Curling Centre, White Rock South Surrey Community Foundation, the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada, who, along with the generous support of Peninsula community members, banded together to create what is described as a “fabulous resource for the community.”
