Bedford Landing on Billy Brown Road has been a hub of construction since 2007, drawing new residents and businesses to the area.
On Saturday morning, during the Cranberry Festival, Parklane Homes will officially open the newest amenities.
Work on the entire Bedford Landing development is expected to complete by the end of 2012, according to Yosh Kasahara, general manager, sales and marketing for Parklane Homes.
"We are just wrapping up [construction] now," he said, adding that the project has added 300 single family homes and 140 apartment-style homes to the community of Fort Langley.
Kasahara explained that the features being revealed on Saturday are part of the master plan for the complex. The Bedford Landing design provided a number of amenities which include: the community plaza, part of the Fort-to-Fort trail, watersport facilities, and the CN pedestrian overpass which connects Bedford Landing to the waterfront and other parts of the community.
"This plaza will be the most significant gathering place in Fort Langley over the next decade," noted Kasahara.
"We worked closely with the Township of Langley on the design of it. It's an excellent gathering place and focal point for community events."
The plaza, which sits just west of the Fort Pub and Grill at Glover and Billy Brown Roads will be opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by another ribbon cutting at the overpass.
"These are two significant amenities we [Parklane] are providing [the community]," commented Kasahara.
Mayor Jack Froese will be in attendance for the celebration, along with other council members. The public is invited to join dignitaries in the festivities beginning at 10: 30 a.m. at the new plaza. Froese will make his first ribbon cutting at 10: 45 a.m. A procession will then move along Billy Brown Road to reach the overpass for Froese's second ribbon cutting.
"[These amenities] will be used by many different kinds of users," said Kasahara.
