Fort Langley / Glen Valley
The Heritage Community
Fort Langley is situated east of Walnut Grove and runs along the Fraser River. With a population of less than 4,000, this charming heritage community is one of the trendiest areas to live in Langley.
With settling as early as 1820, Fort Langley is rich in history and has transformed over the years into a tourist destination, with over 60,000 guests visiting the fort each year. Glover Road has become a hot spot for antique stores, restaurants, and quirky little shops selling everything from souvenirs to essential oils.
Regardless if you choose to plant your roots here, it’s a great place to visit for a sunny afternoon.
Fort Langley At A Glance
Small town community feel, surrounded by nature.
You know all those cheesy Hallmark movies you see at Christmas time?
Many of these were filmed in the town of Fort Langley. The local shops and restaurants have so much charm and character it’s hard not to love.
From the Fort Winery, to Trading Post Brewery, Raw Canvas Skin Bar, and dozens of little restaurants, Fort Langley has a little bit of everything you’d want to enjoy on an afternoon out.
For the outdoorsy and the golfers, there are so many trails close by or you can hit up Redwoods Golf Course for 18 holes.
Fort Langley is a much less densely populated area of Langley City. It is a pocket of condos, townhouses, and single family homes along the Fraser River, surrounded by farmland.
The homes are an eclectic mix of old and new. The old heritage homes have been restored to retain their classic look, while the small 1980s ranchers are being torn down to build brand new luxury homes with an exterior to suit the heritage look of the area.
Parking can be difficult in the town’s core along with street parking in the surrounding areas, especially on weekends when the town experiences an influx of tourists.
Fort Langley is great for hobbyists and those that love the outdoors. Golf, yoga, painting, music, rowing, gardening, hiking, kayaking - it’s all here.
Empty nesters, small business owners, and established families seem to love Fort Langley. Everyone can find their own groove whether it be active, artsy, foodie, or antique-y. You can find your zen at Yogaroots yoga studio or meet friends for a coffee and pastry at Wendel’s. Catch us on the patio at Beatniks, typically with a cold pint and plate of the fried coconut prawns.
You won’t find a big box store in sight, which just adds to the character of the town.
