These days, anyone and everyone have the ability to snap a breathtaking photo at any given moment in their day.
Whether it’s a cup of coffee in the morning, or a spectacular sunset, we can share those small moments of wonder with friends, family, and new friends, too. If you’re looking to step up your Instagram-game, we’re here to share some of the post popular #TrueSurrey photo backdrops for a little inspiration.

We don’t like to brag or make outlandish statements, but we’re willing to put pen to paper and declare the Crescent Beach is one of the best places to catch the sunset in Metro Vancouver. With incredible Boundary Bay views, abundant wildlife, and a beachy-vibe that makes your heart smile, bring your camera no matter what season you find yourself visiting Surrey’s Bay-side oasis.

Barnston Island isn’t technically within the municipality of Surrey, but this beautiful island is only a quick 5 minute ferry from the north-eastern tip of 104 Avenue. Comprised of a quaint farming community with gorgeous and unobstructed views of the North Shore mountains. Pack your walking shoes and charge up your camera batteries, because there’s a photo-op at every turn.

Known as an oasis for migratory birds, Mud Bay Park is arguably one of the best sites for photography. With beautiful biking trails that span all the way to Surrey’s neighbouring community of Delta, Mud Bay Park also borders Boundary Bay’s waters. With a changing tide and The CN Railway sandwiching its trails, you’ll be able to capture a variety of moods and scenes all at one park!
Green Timbers Urban Forest

Centred in Green Timbers Urban Forest is a beautiful lake that many species of water fowl like to call home. The calm water makes for interesting illusions as the green trees reflect on the surface. Green Timbers is the perfect setting for moody-weather photos as well. Fog and frost transform this serene park into a scene right from your favourite Instagram account.
