To visitors and residents, Langley is a magnificent showcase of the past, present and future.  When you look to Langley, one quickly learns of the historical and cultural values that have earned the communities respectful place in literature and maps, but this is also the home to folklore and many little known or quirky facts.

It’s official, the sun is setting on summer. The leaves are becoming a colourful mix of reds, yellows and oranges. You can feel it in the air, and you can even smell it. There’s a crispness in the morning that hasn’t been felt in months. The grass is dewy, or even frosty. There’s much more night time and darkness than there was even a month ago. It’s here – the season of all things pumpkin-spiced. So take out the umbrella, unearth the rain boots, and put on your coat. Fall is here! While we all lament the passing of another gloriously hot and beautiful summer in the Valley, there is still so much to look forward to this fall. We hope you’ll take the time to appreciate the beauty of autumn in Langley and to get excited for the abundance of activities that fall brings. So rather than sit around waiting for next summer, let’s welcome autumn in Langley with open arms!

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.
