    I took my two little boys, aged 2 years and 4 years, along with our nanny, to Fort Langley for some ice cream and urban hiking. We had seen the National Historic site on a previous visit. It is a very...  more »

    The reconstructed Fort describes very impressively the history of British Columbia. It is also clear why the cohabitation of natives and settlers was very much more peaceful than in the States. Here is probably also keeping open to all cultures. Must see.

    Everything was very interesting. We learnt a ton about how people did things in the olden days. Grounds were neat and tidy, and staff friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing I'd suggest for improvement is providing the animals on site (goats, sheep, chickens and rabbits) with larger pens and a more enriched environment. The goats' enclosure was very small, I thought...

    It is very interesting being there. The staff there are very knowledgeable about the history of the fort and would talk to you and show you around if you're interested. Reminds me a bit of going to northern Japan and imagining how people lived as they attempted to settle in a new land.

    Interactive villagers show you how life was lived back when the Fort was in use. Barrel making, Blacksmith, Trading post are tended and explained to visitors. Not as large as Fort Edmonton, but a good 1-2 hour visit here is interesting and they have a few bunnies, goats and chickens to see as well. On weekends there are more children's activities.

    Fort langley, was established in 1827, to stop the Americans from stealing our natural resources (still hasn't worked). The site is to allow you to see how it is to live back in the early 1800's. Visited the site unfortunately it was closed due to no power, how ironic. Site did open in the afternoon and was an enjoyable way to spend the day
