With a population of 19,399, White Rock is located in the southwest corner of the Lower Mainland, 45 kilometres from Vancouver and only five minutes to the Canada/US border. We are an exciting seaside community clustered around an eight-kilometre sandy beach and the warm shallow waters of Semiahmoo Bay. The average summer temperature is 23 degrees Celsius while the winter average temperature is six degrees Celsius. Commercial meets residential along the waterfront as well as in the Town Centre where you will find a number of apartment buildings with retail stores on the ground level. A variety of specialty shops dot White Rock. The waterfront includes a promenade that is two and a half kilometres long, fully accessible to the disabled and parents with strollers. The heritage pier, train station, large beached "white rock", and colourful sidewalk cafes create a special ambiance throughout the area.
