The Township of Langley is renowned for the quality of life it provides its residents. Through an abundance of facilities and parks, as well as programs and events, the Township offers a variety of recreation, culture, and parks opportunities.  

To sustain and enhance that quality of life into the future, the Township is developing a Recreation, Culture, and Parks Master Plan. The Master Plan will serve as a guiding document providing the principles for recreation, culture, and parks service delivery and infrastructure over the next 10 years.  

The Township has experienced significant change and growth since the last RCP Master Plan was completed in 2002 and it is time to develop a new Plan. To assist in its development, the Township has hired a consulting team of recreation, culture, and parks experts led by RC Strategies and PERC.  

Consultation with the community is critical to the development of the Master Plan. Community partners, organizations, and residents will be provided with opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas. A telephone survey will be held before summer to gather the thoughts of Township residents. Members of the public are encouraged to participate in the survey should they be randomly contacted.

The Recreation, Culture, and Parks Master Plan is scheduled for completion in early 2015.

What are your favourite ways to enjoy recreation, culture and parks in the Township of Langley?

I am the father of three young children (ages 2.5 to 7) and our family uses the Township facilities extensively. I use the Township-maintained trails to run. My children do swimming lessons at the Walnut Grove Pool. My children play soccer with Langley United at the Langley Events Center and at the park next to Dorothy Peacock School. My son plays baseball at the Walnut Grove Park behind Walnut Grove Secondary. My kids play all the time at Langley parks and in summer love the Walnut Grove water park. We swim regularly at the Walnut Grove Pool and in summer frequent the Fort Langley outdoor pool.

We do special Rec events at the Walnut Grove Rec Center, use the library for books and up until recently my wife and I both used the gym at the Walnut Grove Rec Center. My wife attended children's activities at the new Willowbrook Rec Center and did exercise programs there as well.

I use the township roads for road cycling. They are a fantastic recreational facility used by many.

My family has enjoyed and love the facilities at LEC and MAP. We also take advantage of the George Preston arena and the pool in Murrayville, not to mention frequent walks on the Houston Trail and Derby Reach park. We are proud to be long time residents of Langley and are very happy to see the growth of the recreation facilities and parks. Keep up the good work TOL!

Our family enjoys the rural feel of the Brookswood/Fernridge area, we go for walks and bike rides all around the area, because of the slower pace on the roads we feel safe riding on the sides of the roads, even with a learning biker. We especially enjoy the outdoorsy feel around Noel Booth lake, it is perfect exactly as is. We also enjoy walking down behind Brookswood Park to watch the salmon spawning, bird watching and to just soak up all that Langley's natural spots have to offer.We go for walks on a regular basis at Campbell valley and feed the birds from our hands. As a family we frequently go to Campbell valley Nature House for the environmental programs hosted there . Every summer the kids take swim lessons at Al Anderson Memorial Pool, and just a casual swim with the family. My Oldest boy has been part of the Langley City Baseball Program for years. The area's aforementioned are in my opinion Langley's Jewels and deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and not squandered away in the name of development.

The rural aspect is one our family enjoys- whether it is bike riding - trail walking or just an enjoyable Sunday drive. It is wonderful to see horses and cows in fields , or wander through the wild bits of Campbell Valley Park. Always a voyage of discovery and always enjoyable without crowds, mess and the trappings of "civilization"

comment...We would like to see an actual recreation facility built in Aldergrove as promised. I feel that there has been ample surveys and public input which has not gone anywhere. If a recreation centre is built here it will be well used and at the same time give a new purpose to this decaying town.

As a resident living in Walnut Grove I would like to see the activities expanded at the local community centre. e.g. A writer's Club at the Library, internet lessons, etc. The local high school does not seem to have any evening courses offered so can the Community Centre pick up some of the slack? I am a Senior who does not drive
