Langley’s City Park gets a makeover

Paved paths, open field areas, central plaza, sports field, and dog off-leash area offically added

On a rainy afternoon on election Monday, Langley Mayor Val van den Broek and members of city council cut a ribbon to officially open up a new section of City Park.

Added to the 209 St and 48 Ave location, just south of Langley Community Music School, are new paved walking paths, two open field areas, a central plaza seating area, upper sand-based sports field, and a dog off-leash space.

John Eppiette, manager of park operations, said City Park’s new amenities was a very successful project.

“It will continue to provide a great area for the public to walk on paths. We’ve put in a dog park area and installed a dog fountain, bottled water filler, and space to play and have movie nights,” Eppiette explained.
