Surrey buys land for future parks, facilities
PROVINCE OF B.C. — Surrey officials have approved a land purchase of more than seven acres for future parks and civic amenities.

SURREY, B.C. — Surrey, B.C. officials have approved a seven-acre land purchase for future parks, civic amenities and facilities.

City council purchased 16 parcels in the Newton area that totalled 7.24 acres.

“The purchase of this land is a first and tangible step in addressing the needs of the growing community of Newton,” said Mayor Doug McCallum in a press release. “The vision that council and I share is to build a new community centre and a neighbourhood park that can be easily accessed by the residents of Newton. Surrey is renowned for our community amenities and council is always looking at creative ways on how we can build and expand on this enviable legacy.”

Fifteen of the 16 properties at King George Boulevard and 70A Avenue currently sit vacant and include the site of the former Rona Revy home improvement centre. Future development of these lands would be subject to funding availability and a public consultation process.
