Whonnock Real Estate & Homes For Sale

The quaint, rural community of Whonnock was first settled in 1861 by Robert Robertson (originally from Shetland) but the area didn’t see much in the way of growth until 1885 when the trains began running regularly by which introduced a steady influx of settlers to the tiny community.

Lying just south of the Fraser River, Whonnock also borders three other Maple Ridge neighbourhoods: Albion, Ruskin, and Kanaka Creek. Whonnock itself is still a small community, with the population of the city of Maple Ridge being just over 77,000 residents (2012), with a 10.3% growth rate between 2006 and 2011. Homes are generally single-family residences with 2-3 bedrooms. Whonnock offers all the benefits of rural life, and many families and individuals in the community raise horses, sheep, poultry, llamas, and goats, as well as a few fruit and tree farms dotting the hilly landscape.
