The Langley Walk was started in 1963 by Pete Swensson, Langley Township’s first Recreation Director, who was passionate about getting people involved in fitness. The first Walk drew about 500 people who walked a 22-mile course that stretched from Aldergrove Park to River Road, from Fort Langley to City Park. The Walk hit its peak in the 1970s, attracting more than 5,000 people; today the walk attracts between 750-1000 people per year.
