JUNE – 5 Fun Things to Do in Cloverdale With Your Family This Summer
The sun is shining in Cloverdale as things start to slowly feel like normal again! As businesses are able to safely re-open, and restrictions begin to lift, now is the perfect time to enjoy some of Cloverdale’s hidden gems. Rally up your family, call up your friends, and get outside this summer!
#1 – Cloverdale Flea Market
Good news, The Cloverdale Flea Market is back! It was recently announced that amid BC’s provincial re-opening the Cloverdale Flea Market will open before the end of June. The market has operated for nearly 50 years and consists of over 200 tables for your shopping convenience. You can check the Flea Market out on Facebook for more information https://www.facebook.com/cloverdaleflea/.
#2 – Visit your Favourite Restaurant
With restaurants able to once again offer indoor dining and extended hours as per BC’s reopening plan, now is the perfect time to head back to some of your favourite neighbourhood spots. While some restaurants were able to stay afloat during COVID, many are still struggling to keep the doors open. Whether that means dining in, eating on a patio, or picking up for a family picnic in the park, plenty of local restaurants would appreciate your support to help make up for the lost months in the winter and spring.
#3 – Cloverdale Athletic Park
Dig up that old frisbee and dust off your baseball glove. Finding safe activities this summer while still being able to see our friends after many long months is very important. The Cloverdale Athletic Park has sports fields, tennis court and basketball courts, a playground, and even a spray park for the kids to cool off under the hot summer sun. Pro tip – don’t forget the sunscreen!
#4 – Fraser Valley Heritage Railway and Museum
The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway is celebrating 20 years in 2021. Go back in time with train rides on their restored early 1900s train cars and learn about local locomotive history inside the museum. While an official opening date has not been announced quite yet, the FV Heritage Railway is preparing for a summer 2021 season. The Cloverdale station can be found at Highway 10 and 176A St and more information can be found online at https://fvhrs.org/experience-it/.
#5 – Bose Forest Park
Last but certainly not least, Bose Forest Park is a beautiful, diverse park in West Cloverdale that offers a more quiet and peaceful outing than some of the other events on this list. The park includes a modern playground, nature trails, and trees that are nearly 100 years old. It’s a perfect park for the whole family to explore this summer.
