Sendall Gardens greenhouse re-opens in Langley City Park

Collection of exotic plants to remain open until Oct. 1.

Sendall Gardens tropical greenhouse has reopened for the season in the Langley City park.

Langley City photographer Bill McHugh was one of the first to enjoy the greenhouse when it reopened on Easter Monday, April 1.

“They [the City crews] do a good job of looking after the plants,” McHugh commented.

The greenhouse is open to the public until Oct. 1, free of charge, from 8 a.m. to dusk.

A Langley City announcement said crews have been “hard at work prepping for the re-opening’”

“In the beautiful greenhouse you can find a diverse range of vivid, exotic plants.”

Opened in 2002, the greenhouse includes exotic plant species acquired by Ehlert w. (Bill) Huebener during his travels.

Huebener is described in a memorial plaque as an former Langley City Parks foreman, who lived on the site of Sendall Gardens from 1975 to 1985 and “was instrumental in the original design and planting” of the 3.67 acre botanical gardens at 20210 50 Ave. which showcases a collection of distinctive plants, shrubs, trees, and a stream named Muckle Creek.

Sendall Gardens is named after Ernest Edward Sendall, the first elected Mayor of Langley City, who took office in May of 1955, when the area known as Langley Prairie was incorporated as a separate municipality and became Langley City.

Sendall includes public washrooms and picnic tables.

The Legacy Gazebo at Sendall Gardens, with a capacity of 75, is available to rent for small wedding ceremonies and photos.
