The Demolition of the Lombardy Trailer Park in Fort Langley, BC.

The old Lombardy Trailer Park is now into its final stages of being transformed from an old R.V. and Camp site park, into a 52 suit detached style home development project. Everything is going on the site but for a few trees when the new homes are built. The change was almost instant (for me) as I drove down Glover Road looking West. The noticeable change in the tree line jolted me when I looked. However, not all noticed the demolition team working until I point it out to them from the street.

The demolition really started to reach a fast pace a couple a days ago, clearing valuable materials from the property before the excavators moved in to flatten the structures, so they have a little more to do before they start the landscaping. Many trees still need to be cleared, plus all the electrical and water lines that were buried for the trailer park area of the site. It also appears that the Laundromat building will be left standing for a little while longer during the construction phase of building the homes.

  1. Thank you for sharing this post with us. This must bring a tear to your eye to see you old domicile being demolished. How long have you lived there. 10 years?

  2. Julia, no, I can’t say that I’m sad to see the park go. I wished I moved from there a long time ago, in fact. Now that I’m living where I am now, I’m kicking myself in the butt for not doing this move years ago.

    I had been there for just under 17 years. Yes, I know, shocking isn’t it. So, change was “way” past due for me.
