The purchase increases the size of the park to 547 hectares (1,352 acres), and provides for greater ecological and trail continuity within the park. The property on 200th Street has been occupied by the same family since 1956. </p><p>Campbell Valley Regional Park contains Little Campbell River floodplain, forested areas, meadows and wooded slopes. The park is loved for its scenic nature and equestrian trails, group picnic and camping facilities and pioneer heritage. It is also the site of Country Celebration, an annual fair that features the rural character and wildlife of the area. The park attracts over 600,000 visits annually.</p><p>The Metro Vancouver Regional District acquired this parcel at a cost of $3.15 million through its Regional Parks Land Acquisition Fund. The purchase advances Metro Vancouver Regional Parks’ mandate to protect the region’s important natural areas while providing opportunities for people to connect with, enjoy, and learn about the natural environment. ​</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue50-campbellvalleyrp.jpg2019-02-28T08:00:00ZGP0|#cad60d88-5c0c-483d-8c0b-877fe7cac52a;L0|#0cad60d88-5c0c-483d-8c0b-877fe7cac52a|Issue 50;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass59B4C6586F9C47978EB4D40FC9455923"><p>​Campbell Valley Regional Park in the Township of Langley has expanded by 3.95 hectares (9.8 acres), following Metro Vancouver’s purchase of an ecologically-diverse parcel in the park’s northwest corner.</p></div>0
