The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society has some pretty special neighbours: Clover Square Mall has many restaurants, stores and services. For Pub fare, there are Rusty’s and the Clydesdale Inn, and beside it the Coast Country Diner for a great breakfast or lunch.
We’d like to suggest that you drop in and visit these fine businesses, as well as the other civic amenities including the the Surrey Museum, the Surrey Archives, the Vintage Truck Museum, and walk historic Cloverdale main street. We hope you enjoy our neighbourhood while you are visiting us.
