Newton

banners in Newton

Newton is named after settler E.J. Newton who, in 1886, settled at what is now 72 Avenue and 124 Street. The BC Electric Railway stimulated Newton’s growth and helped to establish the corner of 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard as a Town Centre.

Newton also includes the Historic Village of Sullivan, located at 152 Street and 64 Avenue. Anchored by the Sullivan Community Hall, which was built in 1928, and the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society, the area preserves an important part of Newton’s heritage.

Today, Newton is home to a variety of educational, recreational and cultural facilities. The Bell Centre for Performing Arts and the Newton Cultural Centre provide a focus for the arts and culture community. Newton is a culturally diverse community that plays host to one of the largest Vaisakhi Parades outside India. The celebration normally attracts between 80,000 and 200,000 people.
