Brookswood is the region of the Township of Langley South of Langley City mostly between 196th and 210th Street.
The area was built at different times. Most of Brookswood was built in the early 1970's. The 'Sunset' development south of 36th Avenue and west of 198th Street was built around 1980 and the newest area, just south of 'Sunset' is called 'Meadowbrook' where homes were built in 1989 to 1991. The most recent areas developed in the mid to late 1990's were 'Brookswood Glen' and 'Cedar Ridge'.
With the exception of the Cedar Ridge and Brookswood Glen, all of these homes are on 1/4 acre density lots to support septic fields. Although a sewer trunk line now runs down 200th, there is not sanitary sewer system branching into the area at this time.
Brookswood is known for its trees. In the older part, mature fir and cedar trees are commonplace. Recently the Township instituted a by-law stating that only 10% of trees on a property could be removed within a year.
Brookswood is a great place for commuters to Richmond and South Vancouver. The route west along 32nd Avenue to the interchange at Highway #99 can mean just 40 minutes to South Vancouver in regular traffic.
Shopping is local at 40th and 200th with a grocery, drugstore, credit Union, bank, McDonalds, Starbucks, gas station, convenience store, bakery, library and an assortment of specialty boutiques as well as many other professional and service businesses.
Major shopping is also available 10 minutes away in Willowbrook and Downtown Langley with an excellent assortment of department stores, big box stores and specialty stores along with a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and coffee shops.
