Know Where To Go: Surrey Civic Plaza Spots With Influencer Susan Liu

Surrey, the future is here.


Surrey is the second largest city in British Columbia, and its growth won’t be slowing down anytime soon. By 2041, the population is expected to surpass Vancouver as the largest city in the province!

As the area continues to grow, now is the time to consider relocating to the city. For the third year in a row, the Real Estate Investment Network has named Surrey the best place in British Columbia to invest. In 2011, Surrey was also recognized by the Clean Energy Association of BC as “Community of the Year.”

Surrey’s Civic Plaza acts as the city’s downtown hub. The remarkable architecture and selection of amenities are exactly why the future lives here.

Prado Cafe

13475 103 Ave, Surrey, BC V3T 0L8

This coffee shop was founded in 2004 but was later taken over by Sammy Piccolo in 2011. Being a four-time Canadian Barista Champion, first ever winner of the World Latte Art Championships, winner at the Coffee Fest Latte Art Championship, and four-time top three placement for Canada at the World Barista Championships, you could say he has a bit of knowledge when whipping up a quality cup of Joe.

Surrey Civic Plaza 

13495 Central Ave, Surrey, BC V3T 0K2

Surrey City Hall

Open seven days a week is the Central City Pub. The pub offers a wide range of premium local craft beer, cider, and spirits. For the beer buffs, the pub even serves growlers.

Surrey City Centre Public Library

10350 University Dr, Surrey, BC V3T 4C3

This place is a book worm’s dream. With four floors of books, computers, DVDs, CDs, and more, the 77,000-square foot building has a pretty decent selection of reading material. The quiet space offers study and meditation rooms for you to clear your mind, and even bookable group study rooms for all the students out there.

Dominion Bar + Kitchen

13475 103 Ave D1, Surrey, BC V3T 0L8

Dominion Bar + Kitchen is proudly and uniquely Surrey.  Located in the heart of all the hustle and bustle in the city, the restaurant “personifies the contemporary motif of [the] city.” The space is a place to share a meal with friends and catch up over drinks. The menu consists of a variety of classic favourites – but with an elevated twist. Customers can expect handcrafted pizza, burgers, pasta, curry, fish dishes, and more.

Holland Park

13428 Old Yale Rd, Surrey, BC

Also known as the “Central Park” of Surrey City Centre, Holland Park is the go-to outdoor venue/park in the city. When it’s not hosting massive events like FVDED in the Park or Fusion Festival, the area is home to dog owners playing with their pets, families hosting a picnic, or teens playing a game of ball. In addition to the sports fields, basketball courts, playground, and picnic areas, the City plans to expand the area to include a water park, tennis and volleyball courts, and an outdoor staging area for concerts and special events.

Surrey is better than you think 😏
