New King City park named for the Langdons

 Photos by Barry Wallace

This new park in the south-west part of King City is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016, but parts of it are already being used by the surrounding residents in the new subdivision, in which the park sits.   The location sits between Robert Berry Crescent, on the north, and Langdon Drive, on the south.   The Langdon name is well-known in King Township and far beyond for the school and coach buses business founded by Blyth J. Landgon and operated by him and his sons, John and Jim, during the second half of the last century.   The company is now part of First Student, the largest school bus line in North American.   The longtime former residence of the Langdon family is the house immediately north of the Anglican Church, on the east side of Keele Street in King City.
