Sendall Gardens

Originally established in the early 1900s, Sendall Gardens was once the private estate of the Sendall family, who carefully cultivated the land into a charming garden.

Over the years, the property changed hands, and in the 1970s, the City of Langley acquired the site. Thanks to the foresight of the city’s leaders, the gardens were preserved, ensuring that future generations could experience the enchantment of this green oasis.
