Bridge at Fort Langley

Langley & Fort Langley, BC

Langley and Fort Langley combine the best of amenities of city living with the peaceful sustenance of a more rural lifestyle, earning it the name "The Country Side of Vancouver". Bustling civic development and a beautiful pastoral landscape make the community of Langley a fine place to live and to visit. Stretching from the south bank of the Fraser River to the U.S. border, Langley actually refers to two municipalities: The City of Langley and the Township of Langley.

Langley, where the city meets the country, offers an eclectic blend of urban pursuits, cultural activities and rural rambles. With its great number of horses per capita it has become known as the "Horse Capital of BC". The Greater Vancouver Zoo can offer an up close and personal view of many exotic animals as well as local wildlife. The surrounding countryside lends itself to hiking, biking, riding, camping and other activities.

Boasting local wineries, over 300 acres of beautiful parklands, abundant farms and nurseries, and a thriving arts community, every season offers exciting activities here. Three regional parks in the vicinity serve walkers, hikers, equestrians, fishermen and history buffs.

The City of Langley encompasses 10 square kilometers (4 square miles), at the centre of a growing retail trade market of 500,000 people. With a local population of 25,000 in the City and 104,000 in the Township, the people of Langley enjoy a relaxed lifestyle and a strong community spirit.
