Pitt Meadows

Geography

Pitt Meadows is located about 45 minutes east of Vancouver, and falls within the greater Metro Vancouver area.

It's directly west of Maple Ridge, another rural community with which it's often associated. Both can be reached from Vancouver via the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) and the Lougheed Highway (Highway 7).

Location

Other neighbouring communities include Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam to the west, easily accessed by the Pitt River Bridge, and Langley and Surrey to the south, which can be reached via the Golden Ears Bridge. The southern border of Pitt Meadows is the mighty Fraser River, British Columbia's longest river, while Pitt River bounds the community to the west.

Landscape

Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge feature similar yet distinctive geography. Pitt Meadows is a bucolic farming community, with flat fields that abound with rich, fertile soil for blueberry and cranberry crops. Situated on a lowland flood plain, the Pitt Meadows terrain abounds with peat bog and marshes. Neighbouring Maple Ridge offers more of a rugged, hilly wilderness feel, laden with trails for hiking and horseback riding.
