The Cornerstone of the Community
The Clayton Community Centre is Surrey’s newest community centre and aims to be a cornerstone of the Cloverdale community. The building is centred around walking trails and outdoor space for future community events. The facility does not have a pool or arena, but you could always head up to Walnut Grove for a swim or Fleetwood for the arena. However, this community centre has a performing arts studio, library, test kitchen, woodworking shop, preschool, fitness studio, and a 5,649 sq ft weight room with fitness classes. It’s the first community centre in North America to be Passive House Certified, using 90% less energy than comparable buildings!
Food and Drink in Clayton Heights
You’ll Never Be Hungry in Clayton Heights
There are fantastic options to feed the troops in Clayton.
If you’re looking for some great bbq we highly recommend Truckin’ BBQ on Fraser Highway. They started with a food truck and perfected their authentic southern-style BBQ, and now they’ve opened two permanent locations. They rival Texas Smoke BBQ in Langley for our favourite BBQ in the Fraser Valley. Highly recommend their brisket.
For something more subtle but equally delicious, we highly recommend Yugafu Japanese Bistro. Chef Toshiharu studied in Japan but started his career at Vancouver’s Kibune Sushi under Hideyoshi Endo. “This is not just a Japanese restaurant, this is Japan.” Dine in only. One of the best Japanese restaurants in the Fraser Valley.
For a takeout change, we recommend Chicko Chicken for some delicious boneless Korean chicken. Highly recommend some Yangnyeom chicken and beer.
Eat, Drink and Be Irish in Clayton Heights
Dublin Crossing is a local favourite with a great wood bar imported from Ireland. They serve up traditional Irish grub and properly poured black gold. Swing by on the weekend for live music and to dance like the Irish. Not the best place to watch the game but one of the best for a traditional pub atmosphere.
If you’re not Irish, you could head over to The Clayton Public House. Something is always happening at The Clayton Pub; whether it’s Tuesday trivia, Thursday music bingo or the DJ on Friday and Saturday nights, I’m sure you’ll find action at Clayton Public House. Inquire for information on their Langley loop craft beer tours.
The Clayton Heights Real Estate Market
When it comes to Clayton Heights real estate, Clayton has something for everyone. There are affordable condo options for first-time buyers along Fraser Highway and 64th ave and townhouses and detached homes perfect for families inside of the main streets. Regardless of your preferences or needs, you’ll be able to find a home in Clayton Heights that suits you perfectly because of the selection. The Clayton Heights real estate market is very affordable, especially when compared to other parts of Surrey.
The Clayton Heights real estate market is expected to outpace the Fraser Valley in the coming years due to the planned SkyTrain line anticipated for late 2028. This will make Clayton Heights even more accessible, which is sure to attract even more buyers to the area. Currently, the costs are estimated to be north of $4 billion for the build-out. Clayton Heights real estate will be less car-dependent with stops on 184th street, 190 street, and 196th street. When purchasing your next home in Clayton Heights, remember that it’s better to be a short walk to SkyTrain than it is to be right on the SkyTrain line. Discuss with our team where you could take advantage of this promising market.
Much of Clayton’s detached homes have suites, and some have detached garages with coach homes and suites. Most of these mortgage helpers are unauthorized but remain uncontested at this time. Unfortunately, the infrastructure for the Clayton Heights neighbourhood is over-taxed by the unpredicted amount of people. This puts pressure on schools, roads and, more obviously, the parking. If Clayton Heights real estate has a downside, it is definitely finding street parking for your guests and tenants. In the evening, in some neighbourhoods, it can feel like there’s a special event every day. Our team highly recommends that our buyers choose homes with extra parking so you, your friends, or tenants aren’t walking blocks home each evening. Parking seems to be better north of 72nd street.
