This past Saturday marked an important day for ParkLane Homes, Bedford Landing and the Fort Langley community, as the final installations of a host of amenities over the last 8 years were realized and celebrated with an inaugural ribbon-cutting ceremony. The list of public amenities introduced into Bedford Landing, including the community plaza, the Fort-to-Fort Trail system, the pedestrian overpass and the water sport facilities, to name a few, were acknowledged with this grand opening ceremony.
Alongside the 17th annual Fort Langley Cranberry Festival, this Grand Finale Event was a great day to celebrate with the community, including the Township of Langley, Kwantlen First Nations, Councillors and Mayor Jack Froese.
The event was a great success, as hundreds of people gathered in the new plaza, mingling over a delicious assortment of muffins, scones and coffee supplied by the Wired Monk Café in Walnut Grove, as well as live music from the Brookswood Secondary School Senior Jazz Band.
This event marks the completion of Bedford Landing and all its amenities, as well as the beginning of a new journey for this celebrated historic community and its residents, visitors and merchants alike.
