Doors Open for culture
The first-ever Surrey Doors Open takes place this weekend, offering free admission to more than 30 venues around the city on Saturday.
Doors Open will provide a unique opportunity to explore architecture, historic sites, parks, places of worship, art exhibits, universities and recreation centres.
Venues will offer varied activities such as guided tours, presentations, children’s activities, entertainment and food samples. Also included is geocaching, a real world treasure hunting game for all ages where visitors can look for hidden geocaches to win prizes.
Doors Open guides, complete with maps and information, can be downloaded at www.surrey.ca/doorsopen or by visiting any City of Surrey recreation centre or library.
The inspiration for Surrey Doors Open stems from similar events held in cities around the world. Its origins are in France, where the first Doors Open event (La Journee Portes Ouvertes) took place in 1984.
Surrey Doors Open takes place June 23, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in multiple venues.
