Spring is most certainly here! Sunshine, spring blossoms and for this week warmer weather. We aren’t complaining and love getting out and enjoying the sunshine. If you didn’t get away this Spring Break or need more Vitamin D, here’s 5 ways to get outside during the warm spring days in Langley!
Just imagine, sunshine, groomed green grass and golf clubs in hand! It’s the perfect reason to tee off at one of our local golf courses. Play a round on the greens of Redwoods Golf Course, Langley Golf Centre or Fort Langley Golf Course and enjoy some of their patios for an après-golf… can we make it a thing? Or want to check off a 7 wonder of the World? Check out Pagodo Ridge Golf Course, where you can walk or drive your golf cart along the “Great Wall of China”.
The weather is warming up, gardener’s and green thumbs alike are digging out their tools to start planting for the season. Langley has a great selection of nurseries to pick from. Walk around the family owned and operated Cedar Rim Nursery, and see if you can stop the T-rex in their garden. Or check out Milner Village Garden Centre, as they have just re-opened for the season! If you are looking for the Western Canada’s largest selection of daylilies, look no further then Erikson’s Daylily Gardens now open for the season on Saturdays!
Grab the reins with some of Langley’s great horse riding companies! You can do trail rides through the beautiful Campbell Valley Regional Park. All rides are a minimum of 1 hour and some offer Sunset Rides in Campbell Valley Regional Park for 1.5 hrs in the summer. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned rider, these horses will make you stop and enjoy the scenery. Check out Langley 204, Back in the Saddle and Glen Valley Stables for more information.
Langley is home to two great outdoor shopping areas! Choose between the heart of Downtown Langley, for finds for the nostalgic at Krazy Bob’s Music Emporium or pick up some fresh seafood from 1 Fish 2 Fish. Soak up some rays and grab a seat in the McBurney Plaza located close to Douglas Park. Or head to historic Fort Langley, for antique’s treasure chest of shops. Grab a great hat from Roxann’s Hat Shop or try your taste buds with the wide range of ice cream & crepes from Ritual Ice Cream. Take a stroll along the Fort to Fort trail to take in the Golden Ear’s mountains in the distance.
Put on your walking shoes
There’s no denying that Langley has some great walking trails. From Aldergrove to Fort Langley you can’t go wrong with the Metro Vancouver Parks. We do have some great hidden gems in Langley from Brydon Lagoon in the City of Langley to Otter Park located on Historic 248th Trail. Don’t forget to bring your four legged friends along as most parks are dog friendly.
