About the Langley Walk

Pete SwenssonThe Langley Walk was first held in 1963 and was established by Pete Swensson, the Township of Langley’s first recreation director, who wanted to encourage residents to be more physically active. The original Langley Walk was 28 kilometres long. It extended from Aldergrove Park, along River Road, to Fort Langley, then on to City Park, and thousands of people participated.  The walk alternates on a four-year cycle between the City of Langley and Township of Langley, with the Township hosting three years at a time. In 2020 and 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Langley Walk was held virtually. People were encouraged to walk 5km during the month of May.

All finishers receive a commemorative crest that has a new design each year. Many participants have collected crests throughout the years and proudly wear them at each year’s Langley Walk.
