The City of White Rock is hosting a free Family Skate on Monday, February 21 at Centennial Arena, made possible thanks to the financial support of the Province of British Columbia. 

Two skating sessions are available at 10 to 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. No skates? No problem. Skates and helmet rentals are included.

Walk the White Rock Waterfront

White Rock’s promenade runs almost the entire length of the beach - walk the 2 kilometre long promenade from East to West beach and enjoy the views of our beautiful City by the Sea. Along your walk, you’ll see public art, Grand Chief Bernard Robert Charles Plaza, the White Rock, and the White Rock Pier. Stop and take a photo and share your photos with #MyCityByTheSea.

Discover Local Art at the Landmark Pop-Uptown Gallery  

Come check out the new show at the Landmark Pop-Uptown Art Gallery and experience a display of photographs by local artists and photographers. More Than The Eye Can See - A Display of Photographs is on from Feb. 3 to Feb. 26. Visit the gallery Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Explore the Public Art Displays

White Rock is filled with public art displays, from sculptures to murals. View the public art map on your phone and enjoy a walking tour around the City in Uptown or by the Waterfront. White Rock's public art helps us learn more about local history and reflects the City’s culture. The curated collection is perfect for snapping a photo to post on social media with #WhiteRockBC.

Family Day at the White Rock Museum and Archives

In celebration of Family Day, the White Rock Museum & Archives are pleased to host a reading of the charming book “What the Seal Saw” a fun rhyming story featuring beautiful illustrations of iconic White Rock. Author Sherry McMillan and illustrator Carla Maskall will be onsite outdoors on the Museum Plaza on Monday, February 21 from 12 – 3 p.m. to share the story, colour pictures, and receive a keepsake bookmark.
