Outdoor Recreation


Established in 1926, the Maple Ridge Golf Course was one of the first courses built in the Fraser Valley and sits high above the mighty Fraser River. The 40 acre golf course was home to Maple Ridge founder, John McIvor and the first town meeting was held under a maple tree at this location. There are also several world-class golf courses within reach in the neighbouring communities.
