Maple Ridge

Nestled below the Golden Ears mountain peaks on the north bank of the Fraser River, Maple Ridge is a perfect balance of urban sophistication and country splendour. Here you can enjoy the slower pace and tranquil surroundings that are characteristic of a rural community, while being within easy access of Vancouver’s urban amenities. With miles of dikes, rivers, estuaries and parklands, you can hike, bike, camp, boat, or fish to your heart's content.
