City Committee Encourages Surrey to Walk Together

  • Page Views 268
  • Surrey BC – The City of Surrey has organized four volunteer led outdoor walks in July as part of its Surrey Walks Together initiative which encourages residents to reconnect with others while walking to improve both mental and physical health. This project was spear headed by the City’s Parks Recreation and Culture Committee.

    “With summer now here, the weather is perfect to spend some time outdoors,” said Mayor Doug McCallum. “The Surrey Walks Together initiative is an ideal way for our residents to explore Surrey Parks and meet new people. I invite everyone to come out to enjoy the fresh air and the many beautiful walking routes that Surrey has to offer.”

    “Reduced socialization during the pandemic has adversely affected many of our residents,” said Councillor Laurie Guerra, Chair, Parks, Recreation and Culture Committee. “Walking with others, whether it’s friends or family members or meeting new people through a walking group, is a great way to re-establish social connections while enjoying the benefits of exercise. With over 200 parks and 300 km of trails, not to mention public art and heritage walks, Surrey is an ideal spot to get out for a walk and explore together.”

    The weekend walks are planned for July 10: Bear Creek Park (13750 88th Ave); July 17: Green Timbers Urban Forest (14600 block of 100th Ave); July 24: Fleetwood Park (15802 80th Ave) and July 31: Crescent Park (2585 132 Street). Residents of all ages and abilities are welcome to join. Meeting locations are posted to Surrey Walks web page, where residents will also find a variety of walking resources including trail maps, information on self-guided walks, walking groups, charity walks and more.

    Additionally, residents are encouraged to enter the Surrey Walks Together contest between July 1 and August 2 to win weekly prize packages. Appropriate safety protocols will be respected and managed consistently with provincial health measures. (owlum@surrey.ca )
