Moving to a new community is a whirlwind of activity that many people are totally unprepared for. In addition to being responsible for all of the typical moving tasks—finding and purchasing a home, transporting all of your possessions, and other moving hassles—you also want to learn everything you can about your new community, particularly highlights of the area and all of the amenities that you now have at your disposal. If you’ve chosen to move to Fleetwood, the city of Surrey’s premier neighborhood, then I would love to tell you about some of the area’s best features.
Read on to learn about the amenities and highlights of the Fleetwood area, and find out how I can help you find the Fleetwood real estate that’s right for you.
Surrey Art Gallery and Museum
One of the best ways to learn about the area you’re moving to is to immerse yourself in its culture, and the best way to do this in Fleetwood is to take a trip to the Surrey Art Gallery and the Surrey Museum. Both of these facilities are dedicated to displaying the unique, interesting culture of background of the Surrey area, and a day at either establishment will be educational and fun. Whether you decide to take in some of the area’s best contemporary art, delve into Surrey’s history or view one of the museum exhibits designed specifically for the city’s children, the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Art Gallery are two of the city’s most important attractions.
Learning the History of Fleetwood
After you’ve paid a visit to the Surrey Museum, you and your family should learn about the area’s history and take a trip back in time by visiting the Historic Stewart Farm. Just a few minutes down a country road, the Farm offers an up close look at the lives of some of Surrey’s original founders, the Stewart family. When visiting the Historic Stewart Farm, your family can take a tour of the grounds or take part of the many regular events and programs meant to educate and entertain visitors of all ages. A trip to the Stewart Farm will be sure to impress you with how far the area has come from its earliest days!
An important amenity of any community is its performance offerings, and this is an area where Surrey and Fleetwood far outstrip other towns in the area. Surrey Civic Theatres offer you and your family the opportunity to see a wide variety of shows, from live theatre, to dance and on to musical performances. If you’re planning a show, there is also the chance to rent a venue directly from the city, providing you the ability to put on the performance you’ve always dreamed of. Finally, if anyone in your family is interested in exploring their artistic side, you can sign up for performing arts classes at the Surrey Arts Centre. For a community dedicated to supporting and promoting a thriving arts scene, there is no better place to move than Fleetwood.
Annual Community Events
During my experience as a realtor, I’ve learned that when moving to a new community, many people are interested in the opportunity for annual community celebrations. Perhaps more than any other town in the province, Surrey is committed to developing community involvement by providing fun and exciting annual events. Though the events calendar for Fleetwood and Surrey is bursting with great events all year long, the most popular annual celebrations are definitely the Surrey International Children’s Festival and the Surrey Canada Day Celebration, the largest event in this part of the country.
If community events are an important part of deciding the town you want to live in, then Fleetwood should be at the top of your list.
Dining and Shopping
While events and amenities sponsored by the local government are an important part of moving to a new city, many home buyers are even more focused on the opportunity for fine dining and high quality shopping. Fleetwood offers its residents some of the best shops and restaurants available. For some of the finest cuisine that one could hope to find, a visit to the Old Surrey Restaurant fits the bill. For your shopping needs, the Guildford town center offers a wide variety of shops and boutiques that are sure to excite. However, these are by no means the only shopping and dining options that Fleetwood has to offer, and the best way to experience the full slate is to move here and see for yourself.
Recreation Centers for the Whole Family
Finally, but perhaps most importantly, the community of Fleetwood operates and maintains numerous recreation centers that provide fun for the whole family. The Fleetwood Community Center is the hub of the area’s recreation opportunities, providing a wide range of facilities that allow your family to have fun in a safe, friendly environment. If your family lives an active lifestyle, you should make sure to visit the Surrey Sports & Leisure Complex, which offers the ability to exercise, swim and play competitive sports in one convenient location. Lastly, if you would like to spend some time outdoors, Fleetwood and the larger Surrey area provides a number of parks and beaches so your family can have fun in the sun.
