Langley has plenty of beautiful walking trails to explore with your four legged friends on leash. However, sometimes there is nothing better than letting them run leash free! I’ve been visiting Langley dog parks all summer with my dog Mila and I am here to give a full report! The three I have visited are: the Brookswood Dog Park, Derby Reach and Walnut Grove Park.

“Our motto of “Everyone Wins” refers to all the participants, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, businesses and local residents who will benefit from the staging of this year’s competition. With possibly the most significant “win” being the motivation and admiration we all experience watching the many physically active and socially engaged seniors in action making these years the best years of their life.”

I’ve been asked to write something to sum up my experience here at Tourism Langley in the summer role of Community Services Coordinator. I’m both happy to have the chance to share my experience with the Langley Explorer readers, and truly sad that my time with Tourism Langley has come to an end. While I am a full-time university student at the University of Calgary, I (unlike Britney) am not pursuing studies in Tourism. I was born and raised in Langley, and my husband, two cats, and our home all stay in Langley while I attend school in Calgary. In late April I began searching for a summer job here at home. I didn’t really have any idea what I wanted to do. I have a lot of customer service and sales experience so I decided to play to my strengths and began searching for jobs that would best utilize those skills. I found the posting for Tourism Langley and thought “Hey, that sounds cool!” and sent my resume off to Christina. When I was offered an interview I was excited. After my first interview I was ecstatic. After my second interview I was elated. And then I had to wait for over a day in limbo to hear if I would get the position or not. Lo and behold, I got the position and here I am.

Bridge over the Bedford Channel

Every Thursday in August the Seyem’ Qwantlen Business Group has hosted a free walking tour, teaching as much history about the Kwantlen people as an hour will allow. The walking tour begins at 7:00pm at Lelem Arts and Cultural Café. The route is approximately 1km over the Bedford Channel and onto McMillan Island.

Last Thursday I made sure to head over to Lelem to catch one of the tours. Now first I must gush about this cafe a little bit. I know Erin already mentioned this café in one of her Langley Project posts but I have to mention it again. I arrived early to have a bite to eat before the walk. First of all the location of Lelem is just beautiful, it is right on the river and the café itself has large doors that open, allowing for a very open, airy feel. They have a lovely patio area set up as well, which is perfect for these late summer days. I ordered a butternut squash soup and a coffee (both were delicious) and had a seat inside to enjoy.
