5 Reasons to Pursue an Education in Surrey
Why should you consider moving to British Columbia’s fastest growing urban center to pursue your education in Surrey? There are plenty of great reasons, but here are some of the best which have nothing to do with Education.
- Close to Vancouver: Surrey is just 35 minutes from the largest city in British Columbia, Vancouver. This creates a wealth of opportunities and events to enjoy such as the: Vancouver Aquarium, Vancouver Canucks, Vancouver Whitecaps, B.C. Lions, Stanley Park, Yaletown, Gastown, the Seawall hiking trail, VanDusen Botanical Garden, English Bay, Granville Island Market, Bloedel Conservatory, Science World, Robson Street, and many more! With such a major city next door to Surrey you can be sure you will always have opportunities right around the corner, and with three Skytrain stations in Surrey’s downtown you can leave the car keys at home.
- Golf: Surrey has six public championship level golf courses which can challenge even the most skilled golfers. Two of those six, Morgan Creek and Northview Ridge have been ranked in the top 100 public golf courses while Northview Ridge (designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer) has hosted seven PGA Championship events from 1996-2002.
- Crescent Beach: Located on Boundary Bay in the Pacific Ocean, Crescent Beach offers an excellent selection of swimming, beach volleyball, and offers beautiful views from its pier and nature trails. Come to play, relax, and see the wide variety of wildlife which calls Crescent Beach home.
- Holland Park: Considered the “Central Park” of the Surrey City Centre, Holland Park is home to a wide array of amenities and events. Throughout the year the 25 acre park offers playgrounds, basketball courts, sports fields, picnicking areas, and of course, Holland Gardens which provides a home to budding horticulture and creative public art. Throughout the year the Park is also the host to many events like the Fusion Festival, Movies under the Stars, and FVDED in the Park.
- Great for Young Families: There are plenty of great activities that the whole family can enjoy; the Family Corn Maze, Bear Creek Park, the Surrey Museum, and many recreational centers offer plenty of low cost fun for the entire family. Don’t forget that Surrey is growing quickly and new housing developments are aimed at middle-class families, making it easier for more families to call Surrey their home.
