Aldergrove is a small town located within the jurisdiction of the township of Langley and is located between Langley and the city of Abbotsford as well as the Fraser River and the American Border. Aldergrove was first settled in the 1870s by gold miners, loggers and farmers and was named as such due to all the alder trees which grew in the region.

Aldergrove was a small city with numerous sawmills which supplied work for many of the people who lived in the region. Today, Aldergrove is mainly a farming and agricultural community and is also the location of one of the five major border crossings to the United States which brings many people through it on their way to Highway 1.

The Greater Vancouver Zoo is Aldergrove's biggest attraction featuring giraffes, zebras, camels, monkeys and many other critters - most which were moved from the Old Stanley Park Zoo which was closed in 1996.

Aldergrove also has several parks to explore and a museum. Although considered part of Langley, the city has a rich history of its own which can be enjoyed throughout the year.
