Langley’s Mayors Welcome You Mayor Jack Froese Mayor, Township of Langley Population 116,000 Total area: 316 sq km

The Township of Langley is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the Lower Mainland, and it is easy to see why: with beautiful parks and natural spaces, vibrant urban centres, and abundant opportunities for housing, employment, education, and recreation, this is a place that offers everyone an exceptional quality of life. Known as “the Birthplace of B.C.,” our community plays an important role in the history of our province, as it was here in Fort Langley where the proclamation which created British Columbia was made in 1858. The importance of our heritage is valued as we build towards a sustainable future that will be enjoyed for generations to come. Now home to 116,000 residents, the Township of Langley features six distinct urban centres — Aldergrove, Brookswood/Fernridge, Fort Langley, Murrayville, Walnut Grove, and Willowbrook/Willoughby — all surrounded by rural land. Each area is unique and offers something to explore, from wineries and golf courses to museums and recreation centres. This is a place where you can stroll along the waterfront, shop in one of the largest retail centres in the Lower Mainland, and enjoy a hockey, lacrosse, or basketball game at the Langley Events Centre, all in one day. Whether you are a long-time resident, a newcomer, or a visitor, there is always something different to discover in the Township of Langley. As our community continues to grow, we are investing in our future. A new Aldergrove Recreation Centre with a heated outdoor pool, water park, and two-level arena is to be completed in 2018, and infrastructure projects, including the widening of 208 Street and construction of a new interchange at 216 Street and Highway 1, are being undertaken to enhance our transportation routes. On behalf of Township Council, we hope you enjoy this guide. For more information on the many programs, events, and services that Langley Township has to offer, visit tol.ca. w w w.

Mayor Ted Schaffer Mayor, City of Langley Population 26,652 Total area: 10 sq km

The City of Langley is a 10-square-kilometre urban centre located in the heart of the Lower Mainland economic region. Designated as one of Metro Vancouver’s Regional City Centres, our unique community with a population of over 26,000 offers all the amenities of a major urban centre – great shopping and dining, world-class education and entertainment facilities, extensive recreational opportunities and community events – plus over 346 acres of parkland. The original settlement of Langley City was known as “Innes Corners” and was later called “Langley Prairie.” The construction of the interurban railroad (BC Electric Railway) in 1910 resulted in significant growth, and on March 15, 1955, the City of Langley, with the current boundaries, was incorporated as its own municipality. This year marks our City’s 61st birthday. And while we are very proud of our rich history, we’re equally excited about our future – today, tomorrow and beyond. It has been an exciting year so far in the City of Langley, with the new Timms Community Centre now open and hundreds of residents and visitors already signed up, getting active and building relationships with other community members. We continually aim to influence positive health outcomes through active living, intergenerational social opportunities and multicultural experiences. This has become the civic heart of our community with City Hall, Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) and Timms Community Centre all in one facility, making this the ‘goto place’ to meet, engage, connect, learn, celebrate and be active together. To keep up to date on the latest City news and event information – please visit city.langley.bc.ca and subscribe free to our new City Express E-News. In the meantime, I wish you all the best as you ‘discover’ the City of Langley and all that it has to offer. DISCOVER LANGLEY 2016



Brenda Anderson EDITOR Langley Times

Whether you call Langley home or are just stopping by for a visit, the Discover Langley booklet you hold in your hand has something for everyone. The Times’ annual guide to the community offers ideas and information about a wide range of destinations and activities within this diverse community, whether you want to pursue fitness goals, commune with nature, learn a bit about local history, shop or take in a live performance. From outdoor adventures in one of Langley’s many scenic parks or trail systems, to its multitude of recreation facilities, there is no shortage of ways to stay active here, whatever the weather. The City’s new Timms Community Centre, which opened its doors next to



City Hall on Douglas Crescent on Feb. 24, offers users a full gymnasium with an elevated indoor track, state-of-theart fitness equipment, a well-stocked games room and much more. That’s in addition to more established recreation centres located in Walnut Grove, Willoughby, Brookswood and Murrayville, as well as a number of ice rinks, swimming pools and bicycle and skate parks. Outdoor activities are popular in Langley in all seasons. There is canoeing and boating on the Fraser River, hiking and biking and swimming at local pools. Stroll or run along any of Langley’s extensive trail networks, which wind through the community’s vast parks and along picturesque waterways. For those who want to know more about Langley’s rich history, we invite you to visit any of several local museums — including facilities dedicated exclusively to the aviation and agriculture industries. Don’t forget historic Fort Langley, where B.C. was officially proclaimed a colony on Nov. 19,1858. Langley pays tribute to its roots in farming with multiple opportunities for a bit of agri-tourism, from Thunderbird Equestrian Centre to the many wineries that dot the countryside. Circle Farm Tours offer a sampling of all that’s on offer from one season to the next. All year round, both the City and Township play host to a wide range

of special events – including Canada Day celebrations and the annual Langley Good Times Cruise-In, which draws tens of thousands of classic car lovers to downtown Langley City each September. If historic buildings are your cup of tea, you’ll be happy to know the Langley Heritage Society has worked hard to preserve many early-day buildings, which continue to be used by presentday residents. Campbell Valley Park is also home to several fine historic buildings, including the pioneer Lochiel school house. Wildlife abounds here, in places like Campbell Valley, Aldergrove Regional Park and in the forest along the Fraser River. Langley has become a popular shopping destination in the past 25 years. There is more commercial square footage in the Willowbrook and Langley City areas than in any other part of the Greater Vancouver region, outside of downtown Vancouver. But shopping is not restricted to that portion of Langley. Fort Langley, Brookswood, Murrayville, Walnut Grove and Aldergrove also offer many unique retail destinations. Whatever you plan to see or do, whether it’s visiting a museum or a winery, take in a concert or play, or perhaps venture into the great outdoors, don’t forget to take this handy, pocket-sized guide along as you discover Langley.

PENZER BIKE SKILLS PARK Riders of all abilities can take advantage of the jumps and hills at the Penzer Bike Skills Park. The park, originally opened in 2008, was relaunched once again last August after Langley City hired ESP Parks. Penzer includes a huge array of technical features in one of the most progressive and sessionable areas while providing complete ‘flow moments’ including a suspended ride more than 300 feet long. Langley’s Penzer Skills Park is the first park built with specific wheelchair access and engages skills building opportunities for wheelchair use in a natural environment directly with other park users. The Lower Mainland-business — which has completed several other projects throughout Metro Vancouver — unveiled a new park design which featured jumps for riders of

all abilities, from kids as young as two years old, to salaried, high-level mountain bike riders.

The park is located near 200 Street and 47 Avenue. The project cost $55,000.

DISCOVER LANGLEY’S TRAILS AND GREENWAYS Langley is home to a large variety of trails for walking, running, riding, dog walking or biking that are sure to please any outdoor enthusiast. ◊ ALDERGROVE • South Aldergrove Park Trail The largest network of trails in Aldergrove is at South Aldergrove Community Park. Entering off of 29 Avenue, the trail branches off into several different pathways that weave through the park. • Fraser Greenway The Fraser Greenway along Fraser Highway is perfect for family outings. The trail isn’t overly long and there is a playground to stop at and enjoy. • Bertrand Creek Trail One of the more popular trails in the community is Bertrand Creek Trail, which takes walkers on a tour through a conservation area. • Aldergrove Park Trail Aldergrove is home to the famous

Aldergrove Regional Park. Operated by Metro Vancouver, this community gathering place is filled with more than enough trails for everyone to enjoy. Featuring Pepin Brook Loop and Rock ’N Horse Trail, the park offers more than 10 km of hiking and cycling trails, as well as riding trails. The trails are now the main attraction at the park as Metro Vancouver has closed the once popular lake. ◊ BROOKSWOOD • Noel Booth Trail One of the longest trails in the Brookswood area, the Noel Booth trail weaves around Noel Booth Park’s six baseball diamonds and continues through the serene backwoods. There is plenty of parking in the lot and along 36 Avenue. • Passive Park Trails Popular among dog walkers and frisbee enthusiasts, the trails along Passive Park are primarily used for the

Park access points are on 49, 49A and 50 Avenues. • Brydon Lagoon Trails Brydon Park itself is a magnificent nature reserve with trails galore, a water fowl habitat and its very own lagoon. But what makes Brydon

Park even more appealing is that it is connected to almost every other park in the City. • Buckley Park Trails Beginning at 50 Avenue, follow trails southward towards Buckley Park and its many playing fields. Continuing on the same trail, this time going east, will lead to another of Langley’s many off-leash dog parks.

ALDERGROVE — GOOD FOR FAMILIES, GOOD FOR BUSINESS Established by the pioneering Jackman and Shortreed families more than a century ago and named after the numerous alder trees that grow here, Aldergrove, one of the oldest communities in the Fraser Valley, straddles the border of Langley Township and Abbotsford City. It is a preferred area for families, with four elementary schools, a middle school and high school, and many amenities and activities offered by both government and private businesses. There are a number of private studios teaching everything from dance to martial arts, and there are pre-schools and day cares to choose from too. There are many retailers here, offering everything from groceries to apparel to automotive services, and there are transit links with buses connecting Aldergrove to Abbotsford and Langley, and beyond. Aldergrove Community Arena is

home to the strong Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association, Aldergrove Skating Club and the Aldergrove Kodiaks Junior B Hockey team, as well as Valley Ball Hockey in the summer months. Aldergrove Community Outdoor Pool

is located at Philip Jackman Park, alongside soccer and baseball fields, all of which are very popular during the summer months. Both the ice arena and swimming pool will be replaced in May 2018, with a new Aldergrove Recreation Centre at 27032 Fraser Hwy. Construction work on the $26 million Langley Township project is currently underway, and along with a covered outdoor pool, it will feature a two-level 550-seat arena, fitness centre, indoor walking track, and multipurpose rooms. The outdoor water park will include water slides, tidal pool, current channel, a children’s’ aqua structure, playground, and picnic area. Aldergrove Athletic Park provides year-round access to sports fields for both Aldergrove Youth and United Adult Soccer clubs, Aldergrove Minor Baseball, as well as a bike track and skateboarding amenities, and community garden plots.

LANGLEY MEMORIAL HOSPITAL FOUNDATION Everyone has a reason for giving, whether it’s in memory of a loved one, to leave a legacy, or to help the community. As a result of the generous donations of Langley residents and local businesses, the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation has been able to raise more than $30 million to aid in providing upto-date technology and programs for Langley Memorial Hospital. “Our goal is to act as a bridge between the donors, the community and our hospital,” said Errin Young, donor relations, events and communications for LMH. Government funding only covers the basics, which is why the foundation relies on relationships with donors, volunteers, sponsors and community partners to ensure that it can support capital projects, the purchase of new equipment, and patient comfort initiatives that benefit thousands of patients

and their families. Fortunately in Langley, there is no shortage of generosity. “It’s all about connecting people with their philanthropic goals and giving them a place to realize that,” said Young. “You really see the joy people get from supporting something in their own community here in Langley.” Last year marked the foundation's 30th anniversary. “We’ve been partnering with the community since 1985,” said Young. In addition to the foundation staff, the LMHF’s Board of Directors is made up of a diverse team of 13 talented and experienced members. There are also numerous community volunteers who assist on with annual mail outs, lend a hand at charity events and more. A couple years ago, donors helped purchase a defibrillator, two capnography machines (used to provide rapid, reli-

able detection of life-threatening conditions and as a monitoring tool during anesthesia and intensive care) and a vascular probe for their ultra sound. In June 2014, the Vandekerhove Family Maternity Centre at LMH was officially opened. The support of donors like the Vandekerhoves allowed the doctors nurses and staff at LMH to deliver extraordinary care in this bright and modern well-equipped facility. On Saturday, May 14, the LMHF will hold its signature fundraising event of the year – the Denim and Diamonds Gala, which will be held at Cascades Casino. The evening will help raise money for life-saving equipment for the surgical department. Last year, the gala raised $252,000. Every summer, the foundation hosts a popular golf tournament. Last year, the tournament raised $66,000. For more information about the LMH Foundation visit lmhfoundation.com.

ANIMAL PROTECTION The Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) is a registered nonprofit society that cares for Langley’s abandoned dogs and cats. In 2003, when the animal control contract between the Township of Langley and the SPCA expired, a dedicated group of volunteers stepped up. Eager to see a positive change in the way lost and abandoned animals were cared for, they lobbied the government for a municipally-run animal shelter. After six months, the animal control contract was awarded to LAPS. A partnership was also formed with the City of Langley. Since 2003, LAPS animal control officers have responded to dog and large animal complaints and given shelter to thousands of dogs and cats.

In 2009, LAPS moved from a dilapidated shelter in Aldergrove to a brand new, state-of-the-art facility named in the honour of LAPS

founding member, Patti Dale. This facility was designed with the physical and mental health of the animals in mind. Private kennels for dogs and places for cats to hide or perch, help to provide a low-stress

environment and contribute to the animals’ overall wellbeing. Isolation areas for both cats and dogs allow staff to care for sick animals and help prevent the spread of disease. Always on the cutting edge of animal care, LAPS has created an adoptive program in which dogs are clicker-trained before going to their fur-ever homes. New owners must participate in training with their new family member. LAPS also holds several free neuter and spay days to help control the local cat population. Every year, the LAPS gala sells out, bringing in thousands of dollars to help care for Langley animals. The Patti Dale Animal Shelter is located at 26220 56 Ave. Call 604-857-5055 or go to laps.ca

Langley is the horse capital of bc with more horses per capita than any other bc city. Langley Horseback Riders often must use roads to get to a trailhead. A collision with a horse and Rider poses considerable risk not just to the horse and its rider, but to the motor vehicle and its occupants.

Keep everyone safe! If you see a horse on the road, please slow down & Pass wide.

LANGLEY — THE HORSE CAPITAL OF BC Langley has long been known as the ‘Horse Capital of B.C.’ and the numbers back up that claim. There are approximately 5,000 horses in Langley Township, and among the various competition venues — all the way from the grassroots level to the international level — there are more than 200 competition days in Langley every calendar year. Broken down even further, each competition has between 20 and 900 horses attending, and on average, five people (rider, trainer, parent or spouse, groom, etc.) are attached to each competition

horse, meaning a boon to local businesses. Horse Council British Columbia, a not-for-profit association representing the interests of the equine industry in all sectors around the province, has 24,000 members — up by 3,000 from 2009. And of those 24,000 members, more than 2,000 reside in

the Township. There are now also 50 equine clubs in the Township, up from just 10 back in 2009, according to Horse Council BC numbers. The Township boasts numerous breeding farms, commercial boarding, training and show facilities. There are also nine feed and tack stores, four equine specific veterinary clinics and what is reported to be the only neonatal equine clinic in British Columbia. There are also three parks within the Township — Campbell Valley Park, Derby Reach Park and Aldergrove Regional Park — which allow horses on designated trails.

CANADA DAY It’s billed as “family fun with a country feel.” The Township of Langley will celebrate Canada’s 149th birthday this year on Friday, July 1, at Willoughby Community Park. The municipality will team up with the Langley Events Centre and country music radio station 93.7 JRfm to hold a free, day-time event featuring live entertainment, country music and JRfm’s Great Big JRBQ. Proceeds from the barbecue will benefit the Basics for Babies program, which helps Food Banks BC support young families by providing donations of food, formula, and diapers. Old-fashioned children’s games will be featured and visitors are encouraged to enjoy Willoughby Community Park’s playground, spray park, and sand volleyball courts. The park is located next to the Langley Events Centre (LEC) at 7888 200 St.

“This event will give people in the community a chance to bring a blanket or lawn chair down to the park, enjoy some great entertainment and good food, unwind and have fun,” said James Marvel, the Township’s manager of recreation services. “It will be like a country picnic, where families and neighbours can get together to socialize, play in the park, listen to music, and celebrate our country in a relaxed atmosphere.” The Township Canada Day celebrations will coincide with events being held in Fort Langley on July 1 at the Langley Centennial Museum, the BC Farm Museum, and the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

KEY LARGO Our in house designer can guide you through the steps and help you pick or design the perfect piece of jewelry for that special touch.

The entertainment line-up includes a variety of dance groups. There will also be a petting zoo, games, races, face painting, balloons and more for children, while the adults can enjoy a Morse code display, a Western quick draw competition, and other displays and exhibits. To round things out, the Fort Langley National Historic site, CN train Station and Lelem Arts and Cultural café will all be hosting Canada day activities.

LANGLEY WINERIES OFFER SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE From fun bubblies and classic whites to complex Bordeaux and fruit-forward dessert wines, Langley’s seven wineries offer something for everyone, whether you’re a casual sipper or a true aficionado. Langley’s vineyard owners have also gone beyond their wines to give visitors a taste of something unique, with events, entertainment, good eats and tours. The majority of Langley’s wineries are nestled into the bucolic countryside of South Langley – with the climate in this region reaching higher temperatures and receiving less precipitation than in any other part of Langley. The drive out to the wineries is a treat in itself, with views of charming estates and park-like farmsteads. • Backyard Vineyard and Winery (formerly Neck of the Woods) is bottling wines focusing on a laid back taste and feel. Try the award-winning sparkling

Brut and easy sipping Nosey Neighbour red and white. After the winery snagged an award-winning winemaker from the Okanagan, Backyard Vineyard’s wines have been taken to the next level this year. The winery has been offering its Wine Flight Fridays since it opened, pairing two-ounce pours of their favourite Backyard creations with tasty bites. Sometimes live entertainment is thrown in for an especially fun end to the work week. • Over at Township 7, they have led the way when it comes to bringing in the masses with fun events and entertainment, from hosting their annual Easter festival and egg hunt, (sold out this year), to the not-to-be-missed Bard in the Vineyard (July), Art in the Vines (August), their Father’s Day Wine and Swine (June) and the charity wine stomp. Many of their events raise money for local non-profit organizations.


Township 7 wines have garnered awards since the day the winery opened – first its Merlot and Chardonnay, followed by its reserve and Sauvignon blanc. The vineyard’s wine has even graced the lips of Queen Elizabeth. Township 7, with another location in Naramata, in the Okanagan, is very community minded, and has a new tasting room. • Chaberton Estate Winery, Langley’s oldest winery, is home to the Bacchus Bistro, which serves French cuisine in an intimate setting, overlooking the vineyard. Langley can thank wine pioneer Claude Violet for his foresight in establishing Domaine De Chaberton in 1981. It was the first winery in Langley and, in fact, the first in the Fraser Valley. Bringing his French charm and oldworld vines, he started growing Bacchus grapes and other white varieties on the south Langley slope.

LANGLEY WINERIES OFFER SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE The award-winning Bacchus is a huge favourite to this day. • At Vista D’Oro Farms and Winery it’s always picnic season, with its gorgeous location overlooking the Golden Ears peaks. A favourite stop in the Campbell Valley Wine Run (Sept. 20) is Vista D’oro. Vista D’Oro Farms and Winery offers the ultimate agri-tourism experience and is gaining a reputation for its signature walnut port, created from green walnuts grown on old growth trees on this beautiful 10-acre property. They host their Walnut Festival each July. With exotic preserves in the farmgate tasting room and heirloom tomatoes from the farm, the owners also offer picnic lunches. • Fort Wine Co. which makes its famous cranberry wine, with berries taken from its own bog, host events as well, including the tours of the red bogs during the Cranberry Festival.

Head to historic Fort Langley and belly up to the tasting bar at the saloon-style Fort Wine Co. where you will find everything from fortified dessert wines to its drier cranberry wine, for which it is best known. Using cranberries grown on the property, the winery also sources local berries to create their unique wines with fun names including Valley Girl, (a blueberry wine) and Bite Me (a strawberry wine.) • New but not to be missed are the Krause Berry Wines at Krause farms. Pick some berries, buy one of their famous strawberry pies or some waffles and then pull up a saddle at the saloon for a tasting of their wine samples. Krause Berry Farms, which has long been known for its berry picking and pies, has opened up a fruit winery with a cowboy/girl feel. • In 2007, Blackwood Lane Vineyard and Winery settled here in Langley and opened their tasting room

shortly after. Blackwood Lane’s higher price point is matched by the depth of their reds, which fetch ratings in the 90s for their Reference ($100) and Pinot Noir or signature Bordeaux blend Alliance. These fine wineries can be found at: Chaberton Estate Winery 1064 216 St. Township 7 Winery 21152- 16 Ave. Blackwood Lane Winery 25180 8 Ave. Backyard Vineyards 3033 232 St. Vista D’Oro Farms and Winery 20856 4 Ave. Fort Wine Co. 26151 - 84 Ave. Krause Berry Farms and Estate Winery 6179 248 St.

BROOKSWOOD SENIOR CENTRE Brookswood Senior Centre Brookswood Senior Centre is located at 19899 36 Ave. It was established in October 1974 by Alice Hood, who had a vision for a place where seniors could get together and enjoy social times and companionship. She started a group that met at the George Preston Centre. A year later their numbers had grown, thus creating a need for a larger place to meet. Langley municipality purchased the Mennonite church in Brookswood and leased it to the group. By 1982 the

membership had grown to the extent that an annex was built. The centre is open seven days a week, offering bridge, pool, cribbage, crafts, games and more. For a $1 drop-in fee, you can try it for a day. A year’s membership cost $30 and it allows you to take part in any of the classes and various pursuits throughout the year. The centre offers classes in Zumba, line dancing, crafts and more. The centre welcomes the Food and Friends Program on the first and third

Thursday of each month. For just $5 you can have a soup and sandwich, dessert and a beverage. Each month there is an entertaining speaker. Call Marion at 604-534-6277 or Sandra at 604-575-2414 to reserve your seat. The centre provides space for many community groups. One group called Paws 2 Dance pairs people with their canines in a form of doggy dressage. The Surrey Square Wheelers, a square dancing club also makes the centre their home.

VANCOUVER STEALTH The world’s best lacrosse players spend their weekends in Langley. The Vancouver Stealth have called the Langley Events Centre home since 2014, after relocating from Everett, Wash. The Stealth are one of the nine teams that play in the National Lacrosse League. The NLL formed in 1987 as a fourteam circuit, which played a six-game series, into what is now a nine-team league — with four Canadian squads — playing an 18-game schedule. The regular season runs from early January until the end of April. Vancouver plays in the NLL’s West Division, which also features the Calgary Roughnecks, Colorado Mammoth and Saskatchewan Rush. The East Division consists of the Buffalo Bandits, Georgia Swarm, New England Black Wolves, Rochester Knighthawks and Toronto Rock. Three teams from each division qualify

for the NLL post-season. And the final two teams play for the Champion's Cup. The Stealth have 20 players on the roster, with an additional four on the practice roster. The players range in age from their early 20s to mid-30s.

Get in on the fun! Ballroom & Latin Dance Lessons Wedding Dance Zumba Classes D

British Columbia has long been a hotbed of lacrosse and the majority of the Stealth’s players live in the Lower Mainland or Victoria, with just a few members of the team required to fly into town prior to the weekend to prepare for the upcoming games.

Sky’s the limit at Langley airport Growth expected to accelerate in 2016

by Dan Ferguson

Langley Regional Airport has come a long way from its opening in 1938 as just one of many emergency landing fields built across Canada. During the Second World War, the facility was taken over by the Department of National Defence to train pilots as a relief airfield under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The Township of Langley leased the RCAF Detachment Langley airport from the federal government in 1945, then purchased the airport in 1967 for $24,300 to operate it as a municipal airport. A restrictive covenant in the sales agreement stated that the land could revert back to federal ownership if the Township ceased operating the property as an airport. It was, as more than one observer has noted, a good deal for the municipality. Langley is now among the largest helicopter airports in North America and it is about to get even bigger

with completion of a newer, larger Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services facility. The relocation from the current 66,000 square foot building to the 104,000 square foot building on the north side of the airport is expected to add 180 jobs, attract additional major investments and nearly double the technical activity and production of the airport. The new facility will include a stateof-the-art paint booth capable of handling bigger aircraft along with three helipads to accommodate customer “fly-in” requirements. Vector in Langley carries out a wide range of major helicopter repairs, inspections and overhauls, including rebuilds and refurbishments, airframe and avionic refits and upgrades and custom interiors and modifications. It is part of the larger Vector Aerospace company that operates facilities in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, South Africa and Australia. The Langley airport is also looking forward to the

LANGLEY AIRPORT generally is showing signs of recovery after taking a hit along with the rest of the world economy in 2008-2009. Today, the airport employs hundreds of people in dozens of businesses, about half of them helicopter-related. The airport has two asphalt runways, one 2,100 ft (640 m) long and the other 2,743 ft (836 m). According to one online entry for the airport, the relatively short runways make Langley a good airport for flight training purposes because a pilot who trains on short runways is likely to be a more capable pilot. The runways are supported by a taxiway system and paved parking area. The airport is located just six kilometres from the U.S. border and is 45 minutes by car from Vancouver. Langley Regional Airport is certified for public, day and night VFR operations. Normal hours of operation are 0800 to 2200 hrs from Monday to Sunday.

The Canadian Museum of Flight has over 40,000 square feet of exhibits. The airport located at 5385 216 St. features 120 acres of commercial and recreational lands as well. It is home to the Canadian Museum of Flight which includes more than 40,000 square feet of exhibit space, numerous large and small artifacts, and more than 25 historic aircraft, including a Tiger Moth, Fleet Finch, SE5A replica, Waco AQC Cabin, Mustang replica the Harvard II, a T-33 Silver Star – and the world’s only exhibit of a WWII Handley Page Hampden.

Filming is big business at Langley Regional Airport. From acclaimed television shows such as Warner Bros. Arrow and Steven Speilberg's Falling Skies plus feature-length movies including Age of Adeline, the Langley Regional Airport is a popular film production destination. One can enjoy a spectacular bird's eye view of the Lower Mainland area aboard one of Langley’s aerial tours. Scenic helicopter and airplane tours are available from TRK Helicopters, and AC Airways to name a couple. Afterward, enjoy a beautiful sunset and a delicious meal from Adrians at the Airport restaurant patio. The Royal Canadian Air Cadets 746 Squadron and the RCAF Air Cadets Gliding Program also operate at the Langley Regional Airport. You can also learn to fly at Langley Flying School.

PROSPERA VALLEY GRANFONDO The Prospera Valley GranFondo continues to grow with each passing year. The 2015 version of the mass cycling event increased by 25 per cent, going from 1,200 riders in 2014 to 1,500. And more of the same can be expected as the ride returns to the natural beauty of the scenic Fraser Valley for a fifth consecutive year on Sunday, July 24. Once again, three course lengths will be offered. There will be the 50-km London Drugs Ride for Hope PrestoFondo, the 88-km One Yellow Tree MedioFondo and, finally, the 160-km Prospera GranFondo ride. All three rides begin and end at the Fort

Langley National Historic Site and take the cyclists through the scenic backroads of the Fraser Valley. There is also the Ryders Eyewear Hill Climb Challenge, where riders completing the GranFondo will test themselves against one another on Sumas Hill, a 1.8-km hill climb which has an average 7.7 per cent grade. Ryders Eyewear prize packages are given out to the top

male and female riders in each of the age categories (34 and under, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64 and 65 and over). The Prospera Valley GranFondo is organized by the not-for-profit Canadian Velo Event Management Society and Prospera Valley Credit Union. In its first four years, approximately $75,000 has been raised for the charitable partners. Last year’s partners — who will once again be the beneficiaries in 2016 —  were Cycling BC’s iRide program, Escape Velocity’s Devo and Global Relay’s Bridge the Gap programs. And last year riders were able to support Canuck Place under the Ride for Hope banner, raising $23,000 for the organization.

photo courtesy — Fort Langley Historic Site On any given day at historic Fort Langley, a blacksmith might be hammering heated metal into shape at one location, while at another, a barrel maker carves curved wooden slats by hand and, elsewhere, an antique musket fires a shot, billowing grey smoke. The fort, located at 23433 Mavis Ave., is often referred to as the “the Birthplace of B.C.” because it is the place where the Crown Colony of British Columbia was founded in 1858 by the British Parliament, to prevent annexation by the United States. The 21-acre site of the actual fort was declared a national historic site in 1923 and became a historic park in 1978. The Fort Langley National Historic Site is open seven days a week, year round, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., closing on Dec. 25 and 26, and Jan. 1. Admission is $7.80 for adults, $6.55 for seniors (65 or older), $3.90 for youth (six to 16) and $19.60 for families.

Annual and seasonal passes are available. The buildings inside the fort include the original storehouse, a one-anda-half storey 1,200-square-foot structure, built with hand-cut logs in the 1830s. It is believed to be the oldest surviving non-First Nations building in the province. Other buildings in the fort are more recent replicas that are considered accurate recreations of the era when the Hudson’s Bay Company was in charge, shipping fur to Europe, produce to Alaska, cranberries to California and Fraser River salmon as far away as Hawaii. The heritage fort is within the village of Fort Langley, a community with a population of 3,400. It is home to the nearby Langley Centennial Museum at 9135 King St., which maintains a collection of over 4,000 archival photographs, 8,500 objects, and 500 works of art. Also in Fort Langley is the B.C. Farm

Museum at 9131 King St., which has multiple display spaces, a library, and workshop for the restoration of oldtime farming artifacts. Fort Langley’s old-fashioned “look” has made it a popular backdrop for film and television productions, which feature the bright yellow heritage community hall in scenes requiring a small town, old-fashioned feel. The two-storey hall, built in 1931, includes a grand ballroom with horsehair sprung dance floor, stage with lighting and sound and a balcony upstairs, and a meeting room, office and public library downstairs. It is located near the town centre, where Glover Road crosses the Bedford Channel, an arm of the Fraser River. On the other side of the river is the Brae Island Regional Park and the Kwantlen First Nation. Local businesses include art galleries, antique shops and many restaurants.
