About City Centre

Surrey City Centre is the region’s emerging second downtown. Once a suburban town centre, the area is developing into a walkable, transit-oriented downtown core for business, cultural, and entertainment activity.

City Centre is home to City Hall, Civic Plaza, the flagship City Centre Library, SFU Surrey, major shopping and recreational facilities, Surrey Memorial Hospital and beautiful Holland Park.

In recent years, Surrey City Centre has also been the focus of significant residential and commercial development. SkyTrain provides convenient access to downtown Vancouver and the rest of the region. In January 2017, Surrey City Council endorsed an updated City Centre Plan to provide a vision for the transformation of the area.

About Whalley

This historic Surrey community comprises City Centre, as well as its surrounding areas. Whalley earned its original name from Mr. Arthur Whalley, who settled near the corner of King George Boulevard and 108th Avenue in 1925. The area, then known as Whalley’s Corner, included a service station and small general store but quickly grew into a bustling commercial centre.
