Placemaking Returns with Pop-Up Beach

For two summers, the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association (DSBIA) has created placemaking activities for positive community participation. You may have seen some: the #LOVE ball, Sweet Surrey or the live piano music at Surrey Central Skytrain Station.

This summer will be no different. The DSBIA wanted to create something beyond the concrete buildings of Downtown Surrey where there is an existing variety of coffee shops, parks and restaurants.

What is something Downtown Surrey doesn’t have? A beach!

With that, we introduce the Pop-Up Beach. You bring the sunglasses, we bring the beach.

This pop-up simulates a mini beach with a beautiful backdrop of the oceanside. It will include beach props such as chairs and a variety of pool accessories. To make the experience more immersive, there will be sounds of ocean waves and perhaps even the occasional seagull call.  

Did you know that studies suggest that taking a vacation increases productivity? Even more, it decreases stress and improves overall mental health. We’re bringing a vacation to you and going to the beach has never been so easy. Pop by for quick break during work or summer school. We all want to enjoy paradise, so take a photo at the pop-beach and share it with your friends.

Pop-up beach is happening on Tuesday, June 12. From 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., find us in front of the North Surrey Recreation Centre near Surrey Central Station.
