Heather Hills

By Kristina, August 31st, 2011


Rolling green hills and purple heather, towering hazelnut trees and trout filled ponds, ……goats and sheep? A resident llama? That’s right, at heather hills farm and golf course all of the above apply.

Heather Hills is not just a golf course but also a Farm Society, producing primarily Heather, Hazelnuts, Lambs and Seasonal vegetables, which can all be found for sale at the Haney Farmers Market.

With sustainability, community involvement, and youth advocacy at the forefront, the Robson Family can proudly stand by their mission statement.

“We will use our lands as a part of our perpetual fund generating organization to better our surrounding community all while continuously striving to make our operations sustainable.”

In addition, Heather hills has a championship style, 9 hole, par 3, golf course, that is all beauty and no pretentiousness.   Included in the course to challenge you and improve your game, providing water hazards and sand traps, to challenge you and improve your game, or perhaps to keep your ego in check.

The course is suitable for all ages and skill levels, so grab the kids, grab some friends or set up a  Fins and Skins tournament and come out to enjoy a day in the beautiful environment of Heather Hills.

WildPlay Monkido

By Kristina, August 30th, 2011

Located in Maple ridge, tucked away in the old growth forest of Golden Ears Provincial Park you will find Wildplay Element Park. Just a few steps down a sunny path and you are transported into another place, it’s like an Ewok village minus the Ewoks add a little Indiana Jones.
Sixty feet above you lies strings, tight ropes and zip lines all waiting to thrill and challenge you. The course is self guided, so you can challenge your best time, or take a couple of minutes to contemplate whether you brought your courage with you or left it in the car.
After gearing up, and listening attentively to our safety instructions, we are on our first challenge. I soon realize as I watch a person , a few years my junior, mastering the course like a trapeze artist as I stumble and sway, that you may find a few more drunken pirates in my lineage than ballerinas.
I make it through all skill levels and challenges feeling energized and refreshed. The beautiful back drop and fresh air will have you feeling invigorated. So weather you want to get the kids off the couch, your partner out of the house, your co-workers out of the office or even challenge your boot camp recruits, Wildplay is a fantastic way to get out and have some fun.
So get out there and challenge yourself to something new,
Wildplay tree top adventure will thrill you!
