White Rock – Our City by the Sea
With a population of 18,250, White Rock is located in the southwest corner of the Lower Mainland, forty-five kilometres from Vancouver and only five minutes to the Canada/US border. We are an exciting seaside community clustered around an eight kilometre sandy beach and the warm shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay.
Because of our moderate climate, White Rock is a preferred retirement spot. Average summer temperature is twenty-three degrees Celsius while the winter average temperature is Six degrees Celsius.
The waterfront includes a promenade that is two and a half kilometres, fully accessible to the disabled and parents with strollers. The heritage pier, train station, large beached “white rock” and colourful sidewalk cafes create a special ambience throughout the area.
Commercial meets residential along the waterfront as well as in the Town Centre where you will find a number of apartment buildings with retail stores on the ground level. A variety of specialty shops dot White Rock.
