Campbell Valley Regional Park is a popular recreation and conservation area, encompassing 539 hectares of beautiful rolling countryside in the southwest corner of Langley Township. Opened in 1979, the park is one of the oldest in a system of twenty-two regional parks, five greenways, three park reserves, and two ecological conservancy areas managed by Metro Vancouver.
The Campbell Valley Park Association (CVPA) will produce a walking tour brochure interpreting the historical and cultural interests of the Little River Loop Trail and featuring its four main habitat zones and their connections to the ecological health of Campbell Valley Regional Park, its visitors and surrounding community.
The Little River Loop Trail walk starts and ends at the 16th Avenue parking lot and while visitors are free to walk either the easterly or westerly side of the loop first, the brochure starts the walk along the westerly side, going in a southern direction. The walk guides visitors through the vine maples that arch across the trail that then opens into the meadow habitat. It continues south a short distance through a forest of tall trees then curves east through the wetland then north for the return through forested and riparian areas to the trail end.
Pacific Parklands Foundation is partnering with the Campbell Valley Park Association and is contributing $2,500 to this project.
CVPA volunteers will produce the brochure content, lay-out and design and have it printed locally. Metro Vancouver and East Area Office graphics staff will review and edit the brochure before it goes to print. It is anticipated that the project will be completed in the Spring of 2011.
