A Little Bit of Country Mixed with a New Urban Feel
The Township of Langley is located in the centre of the Lower Mainland, bordered by the City of Surrey to the west, the Fraser River and the community of Pitt Meadows to the north, the City of Abbotsford to the east, and the United States of America to the south.
Made up of six very distinct communities, the Township referred to as “Langley”, is not only home to the Birthplace of British Columbia (in the charming historic village of Fort Langley) but also the communities of Aldergrove, Brookswood-Fernridge, Murrayville, Walnut Grove, and Willoughby-Willowbrook.
Know Your Neighbours in the Township
The type of housing you find in Langley varies by the neighbourhood. With 75% of Langley’s land area in the Agricultural Land Reserve, those seeking a hobby farm, an agritourism startup, or neighbourhood where a riding lawn mower is mandatory, you have come to the right municipality! As Langley’s urban areas densify, there are new areas popping up with boutique collections of townhomes as well as executive, single, and multi-family homes to choose from.
Dine in Langley
The quaint village of Fort Langley, with its pedestrian-friendly streets, has the lion’s share of restaurants to choose from in Langley. Here you will find gelato, an incredible grilled cheese, an equally delicious burrito, west coast faire, and various casual and fine dining options.
For the wine connoisseur, Langley has a number of hand-crafted wineries featuring award-winning grape, fruit, and honey wines. You’ll also find two breweries, Dead Frog and Trading Post Brewery, along with farm-to-table spirits at Roots & Wings Distillery.
