It’s been an unusual winter for the Lower Mainland. A lot more snow than usual, and a lot less rain – something I’m definitely not complaining about.
Earlier in February I was passing through Surrey to visit my family, and when I drove past Serpentine Fen on King George Boulevard (near Highway 99) I noticed the ponds had frozen over and lots of people were out ice skating and playing ice hockey. I didn’t have enough time to stop and take pictures, but I’ve scoured twitter and instagram to find some pictures of the fun:
Not a bad day for some pond hockey #sundayfunday
Skating on the fen. 2 times in one year!#canadiandream
This little video by joce_wong captures some dogs running on the ice:
Joey stole the puck. I don’t think he understands the rules #shorkie #hockey
Serpentine Fen was also iced over in December last year.

With or without snow, Serpentine Fen is a beautiful gem in the City of Surrey.
