Parks, Recreation & Culture Strategic Plan


The PRC Strategic Plan is the guiding document used to plan the development of new parks, recreation facilities and cultural services in Surrey. The current 10-year strategic plan was completed in 2008 and expires at the end of 2017. We've started work on a new Strategic Plan, and starting in early 2017 we are going to be asking for your ideas and feedback.

Community Engagement

Starting in 2017, we will be offering a variety of opportunities to get involved and shape the new plan. Subscribe below to our eNews to stay up-to-date about the Plan's progress and for opportunties to get involved.
