Like most of the Ladner, this neighbourhood is primarily residential, although you will also find the historic Ladner Village shopping district within its borders of Arthur Drive, the Fraser River, 46A Street and farmland. Ladner Elementary Real Estate offers a myriad of home selections; there’s something for everyone. Many of the condos and townhouses in the neighbourhood were built in the 1980s and 1990s with larger rooms and often lovely views. Built along the Fraser, Seafarer Marina Estates is a unique adult-oriented development that offers owners a private boat moorage at the marina. Single family homes make up the majority of properties available in the community, ranging from original homes built in the 1970s and updated over the years, to new, modern dwellings. The lots are spacious with front and back yards.
Ladner Village offers a friendly neighbourhood shopping experience. The ambiance is similar to Steveston Village in Richmond, where local shops and merchants maintain strong community participation and are favourite locations for film television and movie crews.
Ladner Elementary School, in the heart of the district, is the sole Early French Immersion (K-12) school in Ladner. Parks in the community include Memorial Park, home to the Ladner May Days Fair, Bandfests, Remembrance Day ceremonies at the cenotaph, sports fields, playgrounds and a water park. Cromie Park is another park providing sports fields and courts in the area. Ladner Pioneer Library is adjacent to Memorial Park.
