Derby Reach Regional Park is one of the 5 regional parks in Langley, BC. It is located on the banks of Fraser River with trails along the river to Fort Langley. It is a lovely place to have a walk and enjoy the views of the river.
What We Did
I came here a few times after having dim sum at Empire Garden Chinese Restaurant. The park is just a few minutes of driving away, and thus it is our top choice for a walk after the meal.
The park is divided into a few sections: Muench Bar on the west, Edgewater Bar in the middle, and the heritage area & Houston trail on the east. I’ve only explored Edgewater Bar so far. All I did was walking east along the river from the parking lot, and then we walked back whenever we wanted to. On the way to Edge Farm Trail, there were 38 camping sites, and people were camping in the cold March weather. The firewood smelled really great.
The park actually has more to offer. I wasn’t aware that there is a heritage area with a historic barn on the east. There is also a viewpoint on the Fort to Fort trail. I can’t wait to come back and check them out!

Derby Reach Regional Park is a great place to relax and enjoy a walk along the river. Don’t forget to include this park in the day trip to Fort Langley.
