We explored the Surrey Nature Centre a bit back. It’s a place that was recommended to us by several friends. It’s also a place that schools I work at have taken kids on field trips too. We wanted an outdoor activity this day, and this was the perfect place to go to.
It’s a nature centre in the city, and they have all sorts of things to do. There is an indoor space with everything from a treehouse to puzzles, puppets, and more. What you can also find inside are activity backpacks that will help you explore. You can even borrow fishing poles!
The day we went, we decided to use one of their outdoor scavenger hunt kits, and borrow a pair of binoculars. Evie put on the binoculars and was put in charge of telling us what we were searching for. Our search took us all throughout the place.
There is a giant tree stump to climb on, several statues that of course kids climb all over, and a place to build a fort. It’s really a great local spot for kids to get outside, explore, use their research skills, and just have fun. The great part is its free! Even the backpacks and fishing poles. We will definitely be back, next time though we will be making sure it’s not a Pro-D day. This made it a bit busy, but still very manageable.
