The Westhills Community in Langford, B.C., on southern Vancouver Island spans over 500 acres, bordered by the spectacular Langford Lake to the north and Mount Wells Regional Park to the south.
The vision of Westhills is to build a community for everyone, with recreational activities, nature trails, children’s areas and public amenities accessible to people of all ages and physical abilities. As they develop new neighbourhoods, Westhills will continue to create new parks, open spaces and amenities, eventually totalling over 200 acres for all to enjoy.
