Ocean Park Shoreline Walk - Surrey

Notes from Dad


I'm going to let you in on a little secret; there's more than one beach in the White Rock area.  The one most people know and frequent is the strip with the fishing dock and big white rock perched on the beach.  The one many people don't know about is Crescent Beach, which is where the Ocean Park Shoreline Walk is.  At low tide this is a great place to look for sand dollars, crabs and starfish.  Keep your eyes peeled for Harbour Seals and Grey Whales; you never know when you might see some.  The Ocean Park Shoreline Walk trail goes for several kilometers, hugging the railway line.  Keep your eyes and ears open for trains; you don't want your kids anywhere near the tracks.  It seems like the trail should go all the way to White Rock Beach, but it doesn't.  There are rock bluffs in between making it impossible to get by.  If you shy away from crowds of people, but still long for the sun and sand of White Rock, the Crescent Beach area is a perfect alternative.  Here you can have your cake and eat it too. 


The Ocean Park Shoreline Walk starts at the foot of either 24th Avenue or 15A Avenue in the Crescent Beach - South Surrey area.  If you'd like to find out more call (604) 501-5100 or visit www.city.surrey.bc.ca
