Brydon Lagoon and Brydon Lagoon Trail
What’s better than getting your kids outside to enjoy the beauty that nature offers? In Langley, BC, there is a hidden gem called Bryson Lagoon. It’s a duck-filled lagoon located in a tranquil setting.
Perfect for a short reprieve from a busy day, Bryson Lagoon offers a very family friendly, free outing. Kids will love watching the ducks, and maybe even feeding them! The entire area is a bird-watcher’s paradise.
As you would expect, there are benches to relax on, scattered throughout the area. Bryson Lagoon is surrounded by a looping trail that is only 1.1km long. It’s an easy walk, even with young kids. It’s stroller-friendly and picturesque.
Although the City of Langley has no shortage of walking trails, Bryson Lagoon has a lot to offer, especially for families with younger kids. The Bryson Lagoon Trail connects with Hi-Knoll Park via the Hydro Corridor Trail. The entire area has a bit of a “choose your own adventure” vibe, as many interconnecting trails are available to explore.
Depending on how ambitious your family is feeling, you could stretch a little walk into a bigger one. The entire main loop is 6.1km and will take about an hour and 20 minutes to complete.
The trails are popular with joggers and walkers. There are even mountain biking areas, most of which are child friendly. Dogs are required to be leashed on the trails, and there are parts of the walk that are connected to the roadway. Some caution is required, but overall, the trails are usually pretty quiet and safe. This is a go-to place for me and my husband, and our young kids.
