Historically, the Pitt Meadows area was settled by dutch immigrants which shaped the farmland as it appears now. In order to have more land to farm, wetlands were surrounded by dykes, creating polders within them to farm.
One of the biggest draws to the Pitt Meadows region is agri-tourism. Many farms open their doors throughout the year selling a wide variety of foodstuffs such as meats, produce, honey and wine. From June to November many of the farms offer a peek at their crops such as Meadows Maze which operates a corn field (turned into a maze for the season) and a look at their cranberry farm operation.
The region is naturally beautiful. Visitors can walk along the dyke system and enjoy locales such as Pitt Lake, the largest tidal body of freshwater in the world and enjoy adjoining Grant Narrows Regional Park where visitors can rent a canoe and cross the lake to camp overnight or take a hike to Widgeon Falls.
Pitt Meadows is a small region with an emphasis on its natural and agricultural locale set amidst the southern edge of the Cascade Mountains and alongside beautiful waterways filled with fish and boaters.
