Township of Langley real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a relaxed environment will enjoy Langley. Accessing public green spaces is easy in the municipality, since there are over 200 of them nearby for residents to unwind in and getting to a park from a large number of properties is occasionally challenging. This part of the Vancouver metropolitan area is also fairly good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several louder sections, especially close to Trans-Canada Highway, one of the railway lines or the airport (YNJ).
Driving is a great transportation option in Langley. It is very convenient to access a parking spot. On the other hand, residents using public transit may have very few options in this municipality due to the infrequent service. Thankfully, house owners are served by approximately 20 bus lines. Moving around by bicycle is difficult in Langley because there is a considerable amount of hills, and there are few bike lanes.
