  • We love visiting the Bird Sanctuary! Lots of free parking & the paths are well kept so it is wheelchair/walker friendly. You can buy bird seed & the ducks will instantly become your best friend! Many varieties of ducks, birds, herons, geese & often eagles too. It's beautiful there. There's also a neat little gift shop (with some snacks & drinks too). But please remember not to feed the birds any bread! It isn't good for them!!
  • Amazing how different it is here from Vancouver. Silent, other than the birds. So peaceful. A really lovely place to go for a walk by yourself, or with the family. Kids have a ton of fun feeding the birds! They offer regular bags of seed $1 each, seeds for smaller birds for $2, and admission is $5 for adults, last I remember. Excellent place for birdwatchers and photographers.
  • Simply Amazing! So close to the city as well! The big crane birds are amazing to see. So many ducks my three-and-a-half-year-old just loved it. Nice place for a walk great place for kids to learn about wildlife. Highly recommend.
  • Great place for a date provided you are both fans of birds. Also a great spot for a casual walk surrounded by a wide variety of birds doing their bird stuff. The Canadian gees can be quite hostile though so be aware!
  • Our family loves the Reifel bird sanctuary!! We have been coming here since our daughter was a baby. It's definitely worth the trek from Langley. Our favorite times to go are in the summer with a picnic lunch and on Christmas day afternoon.
