After two years away due to the pandemic, the only wave pool in Surrey is reopening its doors to swimmers starting Tuesday, March 29.
The facility features three windy waterslides and a water fortress with cannons, jets, and sprays — plus, of course, wicked waves.
If Surrey-Newton isn’t the Wave Pool, and doesn’t include a field trip to said Wave Pool, what are we even doing here?

Inside the Newton Recreation Centre, the wave pool is near a hot tub, Sea Squirts Tot Pool, and steam room for anyone watching little ones.
“We will continue to adjust programs and services as required to follow the recommendations of the Provincial Health Officer,” it says.
“Program disruptions or functional closures of facilities may occur if the minimum number of staff required to operate safely are not available to work.”

The facility also has an arena, gymnasium, weight room, and fitness studio.
The Newton Wave Pool’s hours will be modified because they’re still struggling with a lifeguard staff shortage, according to a statement on the city’s website.
