Abbotsford’s unique urban setting framed by the Fraser Valley and massive land areas dedicated to farming provides visitors with a diverse array of outdoor adventures and city experiences. You might choose to spend the day exploring Matsqui Regional Park which offers opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing and camping, or you could take to the skies to experience a tandem parachute jump offering a birds-eye view of the entire Fraser Valley.   For a cultural experience we invite you to share an evening of classical music or the performing arts with many local amateur and professional performers. Abbotsford is home to a number of unique performance venues who open their doors to a wide variety of entertainment.    Many homes in Abbotsford experience problems with pests and need assistance with pest control and termite control. If you have any experience with pests spread all over your property, you might already know how annoying that can be. And apart from being, it can also result in severe health problems as many different types of pests carry a variety of diseases. No matter what kind of product or home remedy you use, if the infestation is severe, you will hardly get any fruitful results. And even when you do, the joy will be short lived as the pests will generally get back on your property within a short span of time.
