WELCOME TO THE 'HOOD'
In a short period of time Abbotsford has been transformed into one of the province’s most desirable places to live. The evidence is everywhere. It is home to great schools such as Abbotsford Senior Secondary and University of the Fraser Valley. It boasts excellent recreational facilities such as Mill Lake Park, Fraserglen Golf Course, and Discovery Trail. For shopping, there’s Seven Oaks, Montrose and George, and the quaint streets and shops of Old Abby.
