Brookswood and Fernridge, the Fraser Valleys Best Kept Secret
Brookswood is a community of approx. 13,200 in the Township of Langley, British Columbia, located on the west side of that municipality to the south of the Nicomekl River. It is largely a residential area with several commercial areas, a Recreation Centre with a hockey area and curling rink. Next to the Recreation Centre is a skate park and a BMX track. The Brookswood disc golf course at Langley Passive Park is popular with residents and disc golf enthusiasts.
The defining features of Brookswood are its trees and large single family lots that give an unparalleled feeling of space and a tangible connection to nature unlike anywhere else in the Fraser Valley. The area was primarily developed in the 1970’s and while the community is beginning to see some infill building it has not lost its warm and hospitable community feel.
