Gabriola Park: Cottage-inspired, centrally located community

By Sheryl Gray November 29, 2017

Langley’s Yorkson neighbourhood has a wonderful location just south of Highway 1 and east of 200 Street: out of the way of traffic and noise, but nice and close for an accessible commute. This newer community has everything a growing family needs, and with more convenience than many suburban neighbourhoods – it’s all within walking distance.

Convenient for families, Yorkson has several schools nearby, including Willoughby Elementary – just a couple of blocks away, and R.E. Mountain Secondary School, which offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program as well as a pre-IB program for students in grades 9 and 10. Getting errands done is easy, with the new Willoughby Town Centre a block away, with coffee, sushi, groceries and other essentials. Hop in the car and drive a few minutes in either direction on 200 Street, to nearby big box and shopping centres in Walnut Grove or the Willowbrook area.

New to Yorkson is Gabriola Park, a collection of three- and four-bedroom townhomes, with fenced backyards, gathered in a setting inspired by the natural beauty of BC. The property is adjacent to Yorkson Creek, and the entire east property line backs onto the future Yorkson Park. Within the neighbourhood itself is a clubhouse, a central green area, playground, and an innovative blueberry maze feature. The design is creative and complementary to the landscape, and has already been well-noticed as a Finalist for five 2018 Georgie Awards.

Gabriola Park is the creation of Royale Properties, an award-winning team with three generations of experience building exceptional communities throughout Greater Vancouver. Royale is known for its homes' top-notch quality for their post-purchase customer service team. With the tagline, “Your home is your castle, and you deserve the ‘Royale’ treatment,” they take great pride in their work, and stay in contact with homeowners to ensure complete satisfaction with their homes.

The architecture of Gabriola Park’s homes is inspired by BC cottage living, with interior design having a comfortable, cottage style feel. Open layouts keep families close, with easy transitions between cooking, dining and living areas, and ranging from 1398 to 2214 sq.ft in size. Layouts all include a powder room on the main, greats for guests as well as toddlers. Among the various floor plans, choices include a layout with the master on the main level, and another layout with a galley kitchen that boasts a 12-foot island.

Home interiors include a welcoming entry with large porcelain tile, and 9’ ceilings throughout the main floor. Floors have comfortable style with 8”-wide textured, laminate flooring on the main, and plush carpet in halls and bedrooms. Master ensuites enjoy that cottage-style touch with a wood plank tiled feature wall in the frameless, glass-enclosed showers. And kitchens combine classic shaker style cabinetry with contemporary pendant lighting and energy star approved stainless steel appliance packages.

Gabriola Park is located at 20498 – 82 Avenue in Langley, just south of Highway 1. The three- and four-bedroom townhomes range from $639,900 to just over $860K. The Presentation Centre is located in the site’s future clubhouse, and is open noon to 5pm (closed Fridays). For more information, please visit or contact the sales team at or 604-371-1892.
