THREE THINGS TO DO: Trampoline park opens soon in Bridgeview

Also: 'Write Your Memoir' sessions at Surrey Museum, art gallery tour Feb. 24

Scott McTaggart

1. The bouncing starts soon at Sky Zone, Surrey’s first indoor trampoline park, located near the Pattullo Bridge. The official opening was delayed for close to a month, and the new targeted opening date is next week (Feb. 24-27 timeframe) for the 26,000-square-foot facility, the 109th Sky Zone site in the world and ninth in Canada. The wall-to-wall trampoline action includes a giant foam pit, dodge ball, Sky Slam basketball, Skyrobics fitness classes and more, at 11125 124th St., Surrey. For details, call 778-395-5867 or visit

2. Want to tell your own story? Historian and writer Philip Sherwood leads a three-session “Write Your Memoir” program at Surrey Museum. A free information session happens Thursday evening (Feb. 18, 6:30 p.m. start) at the museum, with the program set to run on Feb. 25, March 3 and March 10. “Everybody has a unique story to tell,” says Kendra Fehr, a program specialist at the museum. “We know many locals want to write their stories but don’t know where to begin. This program will team them the necessary skills to get started.” The course fee is $75. For registration details, call 604-596-6952, quoting course number 4433627, or search

3. Next Wednesday morning (Feb. 24), jump aboard a bus that will roll from Surrey Art Gallery to a few of Vancouver’s best art galleries. Some “fresh hot international contemporary art” will be part of the $75-per-head tour, led by Surrey Art Gallery curators Jordan Strom and Brian Foreman with stops at the Rennie Museum, Contemporary Art Gallery and SFU Audain Gallery. For this tour, bring a bag lunch or pick something up on site. To register, follow the link at
