Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre is the newest and largest aquatic centre in Surrey. Whether you’re looking to burn some calories in the Olympic sized pool, or hoping to float around the lazy river, Grandview Heights has something for everyone. This massive building has received international recognition, winning several awards for its innovative architecture. The hot tubs, steam room and dry sauna are just a few of the many facilities for those looking to relax. However, Grandview Heights has no shortage of activities for children of all ages. The toddler spray area is a favourite and there’s a full set of diving towers for those brave of heart. However, the main attraction would have to be the huge water slide towering above the rest of the pool.

Where indoor pools shine in providing a wide-range of amenities, outdoor pools compensate with their prime spot underneath the sun. Cool yourself off from the blazing heat by jumping into the refreshing water of the Sunnyside Outdoor Pool. Similar to all the outdoor pools in Surrey, admission to Sunnyside Pool is free. In addition to the pool itself, Sunnyside also houses softball diamonds, tennis courts, sports fields and a playground making this the perfect place to enjoy the summer weather. Lastly, the grass area surrounding the pool makes this the perfect location to hold a quick picnic after a day’s worth of swimming and other activities.

Sporting a newly renovated waterpark, South Surrey Athletic Park is a great way to enjoy the refreshing water without having to jump into a full-fledged pool. Featuring over 6 water spraying contraptions, this water park is guaranteed to have kids busy for a long time. Additionally, this spray park is fully fenced-in to provide all parents with peace of mind. If it’s warmer than 20°C, you can activate the water system with push buttons. Furthermore, this summer destination is also the home to other outdoor activities. You can play soccer, basketball, tennis, football, baseball the list goes on! Lastly, the athletic complex is located next to the Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest. This 130-hectare forest houses a variety of animals and most importantly, large trees providing ample shade.
