Fraser Heights Neighbourds
Fraser Heights is the northern part of Surrey, located in the true centre of the Greater Vancouver area of BC.
Besides the Fraser River, surrounded by Highway 1, Highway 17 and Highway 15, Fraser Heights is the most convenient area for both accessing
Vancouver core from east, entering the interior of BC by Langley and Abbotsford from the West, driving to the border with the United States from the North,
and to the South the Tsawwassen ferry to Vancouver Island.
From BCs second largest commercial center- Guildford,
you can enter Fraser Heights from the two main entrances- 156 St under Highway 1 or 160 St bridge across Highway 1.
Fraser Heights is a community by itself, a well-designed
residential area interlinked with 12 parks, beautiful landscaping, wide street ,walking route, creeks and peaceful ponds, to the North side of Fraser Heights,
gorgeous river valley and magnificent mountain view.
Nearly 5,000 households, 20,000 population, evenly spread in this approximately
20 square kilometers area -5 kilometer long from northwest to southeast and 2.5 km wide in the middle.

Before 1980s, Fraser Heights was only a small remote village with undeveloped large pieces of land.
Thanks for Surrey's development vision and more people settling into Fraser Heights, from 1980s to 2000s,
the different developers subdivided the different areas in different times. Until now,
I can roughly divide whole Fraser Heights into 25 distinguished neighbourhoods based on the locations, historic names.
Recent years, large number of new immigrants, especially from Mainland China(Mostly speaking Mandrain), moved into Fraser Heights. These new residents love the Fraser Heights Neighbourhood. They are also attracted by good schools in Fraser Heights.
