About Glen Valley
Early settlement in Glen Valley was primarily due to the development and activity from the Hudson Bay Company at nearby Fort Langley. The proximity to the Fraser River and the relatively flat and fertile land made the area an ideal place to grow a community. Settlement further continued to boom because of the Canadian Northern Railway line that arrived in 1910.
Glen Valley was also involved in the Soldiers’ Settlement Board after the First World War. As part of this program from the federal government, returning soldiers were able to acquire land in the neighbourhood and were encouraged to use it for farming purposes. Jack Hassall is a notable veteran who settled here, with the original Hassall Residence built in 1917 still standing today as a formally recognized Canadian historic site.
You can access Glen Valley by vehicle via Trans-Canda Highway (Highway #1). Public transportation options are limited in this area.

Things to Do in Glen Valley
Go fishing at Glen Valley Regional Park
Glen Valley Regional Park, also known by some as Two-bit Bar, earned this nickname from when the Hassall family would charge “two bits” (25 cents) for fishermen to park and fish by their property on the shore. The park today is popular with anglers looking to catch salmon or trout, but without the two bits charge.
The park is known as the site of Glen Valley’s original first store, post office and wharf. Dogs are welcome on leash at the park as well. Visitors are reminded that tidal fishing is subject to provincial regulations and license requirements. Please note that many active farms surround the park, and to be respectful of any operational farm vehicles and activity while you are there.
The Bog Riverside Cranberry Farm
The family-owned and operated Bog Riverside Cranberry Farm is ready for you to visit! The retail Farm Store is online year-round: get a jar of their popular bog cranberry sauce, cold-pressed cranberry juice, cranberry pepper jelly, or a bag of premium frozen cranberries. Harvest tour season is typically from late September to October, offering an opportunity to stroll the perimeter of the field to see the active harvest, or for those brave enough, go on the “cranberry plunge” and put on a pair of waders to go directly into the field of floating cranberries! Please note that as an active farm, all visitors are requested to be respectful of the working environment when stopping by.
