Has your calendar has been marked for February 12th since the holiday season? It’s the first holiday in about six weeks (not that we’re counting), and we’re here to make sure you get the very best out of Family Day! There’s so much #KidApprovedBC fun just waiting to be discovered in Surrey, and now it’s time to get planning. Whether your youngster is a nature-lover, or they have a soft spot for animals, there’s something for everyone this Family Day in Surrey.
For the animal lovers, discover exotic reptiles and animals at the Urban Safari Rescue Society. This rescue organisation is dedicated to teaching kids all about conservation and how important ecosystems (like Surrey’s) are. Take a tour of the facility and meet some reptile friends. If scales and serpents aren’t up your alley, the Honeybee Centre is a great place to take your family or loved ones and indulge in a little honey-inspired high tea!
Looking to unplug for the day? Head to the Family Day Geocache Hunt at Clayton Park in Cloverdale! Team up with your family and navigate to specific coordinates using the provided GPS unit to discover hidden treasures! Or head to the Historic Stewart Farm for their Family Flags event. Create your own family crest, and learn all about flags, tartans and coat of arms that families would use to represent themselves. If the great outdoors are calling, take a stroll through Holland Park, or play a little soccer on the fields before discovering a new restaurant in Surrey’s bustling downtown core.
Keeping the kids active on a day off is a breeze in Surrey. The Coastal Climbing Centre hosts drop-in hours from 3:30 to 5:30pm, where no experience is necessary, and kids can climb the walls (literally) with zero stress. For the bouncy bunny in your family, Sky Zone Trampoline Park is perfect for expelling extra energy. They also offer a Sensory Night from 6:00 to 8:00pm for jumpers and families with sensory disorders, so ALL kids can join the fun.
