The Township of Langley is bounded on the west by the City of Surrey, on the north by the Fraser River, on the east by the City of Abbotsford, and on the south by the Canada - U.S. boundary. It comprises 303 square kilometres (122 square miles) and is home to more than 80,000 people. With a 24-hour border crossing nearby, access from Langley to the U.S. is easy.
The Township of Langley's Welcome Sign greets visitors on each of the routes entering the Township.
Many internationally operating and export oriented companies make Langley their home. Winery and greenhouse operations provide intensification of farm production. Commercial scale dairy, livestock breeding, and poultry operations provide food supply for a growing market in metropolitan Vancouver.
Equestrian activities, from recreational riding to the breeding and training of competition horses, make an important contribution to the economy. Examples of industrial activities include mining equipment fabrication, precision machinery, architectural lighting design, food processing, paint product development, aircraft maintenance and repair, and value added softwood lumber processing.
The Township is the municipal organization for the various communities, including Fort Langley, Aldergrove, Murrayville, Walnut Grove, Brookswood and Willowbrook. The Township does not include the separate municipal entity of Langley City. There are five museums in the Township (see below). There are over 40 parks, including neighbourhood, community, municipal and regional parks. The four regional parks are Campbell Valley, Aldergrove Lake, Derby Reach and Glen Valley.
