A semi-rural neighbourhood made up of hobby farms, small acreages, and estates with luxury homes, Hazelmere is rooted in history as a thriving lumbering, milling and farming community.
If you’re looking for a home surrounded by some of South Surrey’s most beautiful parks and natural areas in a quiet, country setting with amenities nearby, come to Hazelmere to discover your dream home today!
As one of Surrey’s first farming areas, the settlement of Hazelmere – originally known as Hall’s Prairie – dates back to 1878. Hall’s Prairie Elementary stands on the site of the original schoolhouse that opened in 1884. The small school is a cornerstone of the community and hosts Hall's Prairie Country Market Day
Hazelmere United Church is one of the oldest churches in Surrey, constructed in 1905. Women in the community rode from house to house by bicycle to collect donations for the church construction. The area has a rich agricultural past that continues to be celebrated in the community, including Hall's Prairie Country Market Day, Hazelmere Organic Farm, and the annual Father's Day Salmon BBQ hosted by the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club.
The commitment of the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club members runs deep. In 1979, a 30-acre piece of property on the Little Campbell River was put up for sale. The club had enough money for the 30 acres, but the owner was trying to sell an additional 40-acre property with it, which the club couldn't afford. Four members of the club mortgaged their homes to purchase the full 70 acres, and sold the additional 40 acres within a year.
And if you’re wondering how the neighbourhood got its name, Hazelmere was named for the hazel bushes on the property of the homesteader, Henry T. Thrift, as well as a town near his birthplace in England..
QUIET, PASTORAL CHARM
Rural living with access to parks and natural areas, but also the proximity to amenities in the Cities of White Rock, Surrey and Langley.
That is the cornerstone of what attracts residents – such as hobby farmers, equestrians, retirees, and wealthy families wanting to live in secluded estates – to Hazelmere. Here you’ll find beautiful properties set in a rural atmosphere with rolling hills, hedgerows, large trees and views of Mount Baker.

& THINGS TO DO
From outdoor parks, golfing, the fish and game club, through to equestrian and camping – Hazelmere presents a well-rounded list of activities to keep families engaged.
The Hazelmere Pumpkin Patch is a favourite fall activity in South Surrey, with a small admission fee providing public access to the huge pumpkin patch, hayride, petting zoo and corn maze. Pick your own pumpkin every weekend in October between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Fancy a hike or a breath of fresh air somewhere unique? Latimer Park is an undeveloped with trails and an old quarry that filled with rain water to become a small lake. Then, go and enjoy Redwood Park, a beautiful, naturalized park with a rich history. David and Peter Brown, the twin sons of an early pioneer of the area, David Brown, began planting the land with over 50 different tree species from around the world in the 1890s. The original treehouse where the brothers lived in burnt down, but was replaced by the City of Surrey and is now a reminder of the park’s history. And stop by Keery Park’s forested walking trails on the western edge of Campbell Heights.
If you like the outdoors, but golf is your relaxation of choice, the Hazelmere Golf and Country Club has been a staple in the neighbourhood dating back to 1962. The club boasts 147 acres of land, a 30,000 sq. foot clubhouse, 18 holes of golf, banquet rooms, professional wedding services, and four indoor tennis courts.
The Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club was founded in 1957 by a group of conservationists intent on the restoration of the Little Campbell River. Over 50 years later, it is home to a hatchery, a wedding/private function hall overlooking the river, easy-level and wheelchair-accessible nature trails, archery and shooting ranges. The volunteer-run hatchery produces 170,000 salmon and trout in a typical year and runs a “Salmon in the Classroom” program for school children.
For horse-riders, the Hazelmere Equestrian Center is the place to be. The centre is the family stable of Rochelle Kilberg, an Equine Canada certified coach who competes nationally and internationally, who provides training in dressage, boarding and grooming.
Finally, whether you want to take the kids camping for the weekend, or have friends coming in from out of town that like to camp, the Hazelmere RV Park & Campground has plenty to offer. With a full service RV park and Campground, including amenities a pool and hot tub, large playground, and playing fields, fees range from $36 per day for tenting to $70.00 per day for cabins.
