White Rock

Living in White Rock

White Rock’s iconic pier, its’ massive rock for which the town is named, fish and chip shops, and the railway that runs alongside White Rock’s shoreline are emblematic of this charming seaside town.
For decades White Rock thrived in its own unique way, drawing artists, musicians and retirees seeking a slower pace of life. However, an ever-increasing population, new developments and nearby shopping malls, has transformed White Rock from a quiet small town into a bustling suburb at the edges of Metro Vancouver. Comprised of 5 square kilometers, the City of White Rock is surrounded on three sides by Surrey with Semiahmoo Bay to the south.
