THE City of Surrey’s Park Play program is back this summer encouraging families to get outdoors and enjoy a range of free park-based activities.
City staff will be stationed at various parks throughout the summer offering staff-led activities and self-guided kits for families to enjoy while visiting the park. The play kits include equipment like balls, skipping ropes and catchers with some locations also offering spray park items like sprayers, bubbles and sponge balls.
City staff will lead two scheduled group games at each site. Park games such as bocce and Spike Ball will also be available to borrow to play with family and friends.

* Mondays from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Hjorth Road Park and Fleetwood Park and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Francis Park
