SURREY is a sprawling suburban community, the largest in BC in terms of land area, covering 371 square km., stretching from the banks of the Fraser river south to Boundary Bay and the US border. "The City of Parks", has more than 400. Peace Arch is not a typical BC Provincial Park, instead it is a testament to peace between Canada and the US. The main attraction here is the imposing white monument called Peace Arch, a unique symbol of peace and friendship between Canada and the United States. The monument was constructed in 1921, and today remains an open gate between Canada and the US bearing the inscription "May These Gates Never Close".
DELTA is comprised of three urban communities: North Delta, Ladner, and Tsawwassen, Bounded by the Fraser River, the Strait of Georgia, Surrey, and the US/Canada border at Boundary Bay, Delta is a nature lover's haven. Visit the George C. Reifel Bird Sanctuary, one of North America's major waterfowl habitats where more than 230 species have been observed. Historic Ladner, is an active fishing village where its 19th-century homes sit behind the dykes that hold the Fraser River at bay.
Southwest of Surrey on the Semiahmoo Peninsula is the beautiful oceanside community of WHITE ROCK. The city of White Rock was named after the most noticeable landmark in the area, a massive white 486-ton boulder that lies on the beach just east of the pier. One of the city's major features, the City Pier, marches out into Semiahmoo Bay, stretching some 1,500 feet into the water. It is a favourite haunt of sightseeing families and sunset- seeking couples.
