Welcome to Maple Ridge

The City of Maple Ridge is proud to be the host community for the 2024 BC Summer Games.

Maple Ridge is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Katzie First Nation and Kwantlen First Nation. The Katzie and Kwantlen people have lived on this land for time immemorial, and we honour their stewardship, history, culture and unique knowledge of this place we live in and love.

Maple Ridge is located between the Fraser River and the Golden Ears Mountains, part of the Coast Mountain range. The City is bordered by Pitt Meadows to the west and Mission to the east.

Getting Here

The City can be accessed from the Trans Canada Highway by heading north on the 200th Street exit across the Golden ears Bridge where you get a spectacular view to welcome you to the community.

You can also access the community east and west on BC Highway #7, the Lougheed Highway. Please note that work is underway to expand Highway 7 to four lanes between the eastern border of Maple Ridge at 287 Street west to 272 Street. Construction will be underway on this route until the summer of 2025, so please prepare for construction delays during the weekdays.

What’s Happening in Maple Ridge

This is a big year for Maple Ridge, as we are celebrating the 150th year since the City was incorporated on September 12 of 1874. A year long celebration launched in May of 2024 and there will be several community events culminating in the Celebrate the Night event in October.

The largest of the Maple Ridge 150 events will be held on Saturday, September 14 where the City’s downtown will come alive with live music, food trucks, activities and free family fun. We hope you’ll come back and join us for this event.

The BC Summer Games are a huge part of our birthday celebrations, and we know that the over 3000 athletes, coaches and sports officials will bring many family and friends to the community. You’ll see our Maple Ridge 150 banners in the downtown and along major thoroughfares during your time here.

We encourage you to explore Maple Ridge’s natural beauty and the incredible hospitality of our community. There’s over 200 kilometres of trails for people of all skills and abilities. There’s a great craft brewing community, local farm to table businesses and restaurants and boutiques to make you stay special.
