Message from another resident:

We are looking for care for our 2 kids (7 & 10) in September and for the School year. The kids are self-sufficient and really just need supervision once home from school. Looking for someone who can be at the house around 3:00 to meet the kids until I am home around 5 pm (kids will walk home).
Excellent for a high school student looking to make some extra money with little commitment. Monday to Thursdays. Email T5812690@telus.net for more details.

Message from a local resident: If you live on 128th street/Marine Drive and are concerned about speeding vehicles and motorcycles the only way we will get speed monitoring is if we all call into the non-emergency police line when it happens.

We are all aware 128th street is a cruising route with this type of activity peaking in the summer, however, it is also a residential neighborhood with plenty of kids riding bikes and crossing the street. A little respect for our neighbourhood would be appreciated. Please call if you see this type of activity.

Non-emergency line: 604-599-0502

Update on Ocean Park Community Association Emergency Preparedness Plan

The Ocean Park Community Association Emergency Preparedness Plan Subcommittee held its first meeting in December 2015. The initial focus for the group will be earthquake preparedness, especially the post-earthquake response. Discussions are focused on primary risk areas in the area, and the review of several earthquake plans from other communities. From now until May, the subcommittee will meet monthly, and aims to have a plan ready to present for May 7, the last day of Emergency Preparedness Week. In the coming months, look for the subcommittee to reach out to the Ocean Park community to help fill the roles identified the plan: response coordinator, medics, communications, construction/structural assessment, meals and food, emergency lodging.

In the meantime please feel free to check out our Emergency Preparedness Resources.

Kwomais Park Update

In November 2015 the Ocean Park Community Association and members of the Ocean Park public met with the City of Surrey to discuss the additional parking lot and traffic changes coming to Kwomais Park.

During that meeting we were informed that the additional parking lot for Kwomais Park would be scaled down in size and would only be open during special events, like weddings. Another point that was made is the City is looking to use a surface material other than asphalt that could be used for other purposes when the parking lot is not in use. 

Do you spend time in Kwomais Park? And if so, what do you think the other purposes for this parking lot could be? We want to hear from you! Please email us at oceanparkvillage@gmail.com if you have any suggestions we can forward to the City of Surrey.

Mail Box Theft

A local resident notified us of an early morning Canada Post mail box break-in. Read the original message here:

“I heard a noisy car in our culdesac before 7am and my daughter heard noises shortly after. When she looked out there were two guys opening the boxes on our mailbox. When I went out they were gone but all the box doors were open. We called police and they came by patrolling. Also notified Canada Post. So let people know to be vigilant if you hear or see something unusual, take note or call police!”

Please call the Surrey RCMP non-emergency line if you see or hear anything suspicious – 604.599.0502.

Please feel free to print and laminate this Mailbox Theft Prevention Notice provided to the public by the Surrey RCMP to post on  your communal mail box.

Suspicious Person

The following message was received from a local resident who witnessed a suspicious person in the Ocean Park Village on Wednesday. 

“On Wednesday afternoon at about 4:40pm Mike and I were shopping at Ocean Park Village at the corner of 16th avenue and 128th street. While we were exiting Rexall drugs, Mike noticed a male standing on the sidewalk who looked out of place. Mike went around to the back of the vehicle and I went around the back with him to put some items we purchased into the hatch. As I walk around to the passenger side with my purse in hand, Mike noticed the male watching me and moving in my direction. Mike then made himself visible to the male from around the back of the car. Once the male saw Mike, he stopped immediately and began standing “awkwardly” like he was trying to look natural.

The male continued standing there while we got into our vehicle. Mike then noticed two young females about 13 or 14 years old walk around the corner toward the breezeway, which went to the alley between the Library and Starbucks. The male turned his back to the females and once they were well passed him, he turned to follow behind them through the breezeway. We drove around the building and observed the females travelling Northbound toward 128th street. The male was focussed on them and following about 30 meters behind. The male ducked into a bush area behind Coast Capital savings and took off the red hoodie he was wearing and placed it into the bush. He then continued following the females Northbound on 128th.

Mike and I drove ahead of the girls and pulled into a townhouse complex to wait for them to pass. Mike told me to warn the girls that they were being followed, so I got out and approached them. By this time, the male had closed the distance on the two girls and was now only about 5 metres behind them. I warned them and they turned around to look… the male then ducked off into a driveway and hid. The girls went home a few doors down and we watched them enter a house. We then turned around, only to see this male reappear and turn back Southbound on128th street toward Safeway. He retrieved his hoodie from the bush and we believe he was now aware he was being followed. He walked back into the alley behind Safeway where we lost sight of him.

Mike called the RCMP and they came and did patrols. Mike spoke with the member at the location and advised him of the situation. I went into Starbucks and told the staff to be on the lookout for this male and gave a description. They told me that a male matching that description was in the area a week prior and someone had called the police on him as well, although they did not know the circumstances of the complaint. The staff said they would speak to their manager about getting cameras in the rear of the Starbucks because they have had property stolen from the back of the building recently.

What is REALLY REALLY creepy about this situation, is that he followed the girls who had nothing visible to steal. He also ditched his clothing to try and change his appearance… possibly to do something and then put the red hoodie back on after the fact. Mike initially thought he might be trying to steal a purse or bag, but clearly, he might have been up to something much worse. In any event, let your kids know to walk in groups and be aware of their surroundings at all times. You never know what can happen. A description of this male is as follows:

White male/19 to 23 years old/thin build/dirty blonde hair/appeared clean shaven/approximately 6′ to 6’1 tall/red hoodie/dark jeans

Sorry if this is long winded, but I had to give this some context to appreciate the incident.

Feel free to repost so that we can spread the word.”

Please remember if you see anything  or anyone that seems out of place please report the incident to the Surrey RCMP non-emergency phone line at 604-599-0502.
