- Como Lake - Various origins have been suggested for this name: Como, a Sandwich Islander or Hawaiian who belonged to the party that founded Fort Langley in 1827; Lake Como in northern Italy or even a compound of 'Co' for Coquitlam and 'mo' for Port Moody
- Douglas Island - at confluence of Pitt R. and Fraser R. (B-8). Originally Manson Island after Donald Manson, a member of the expedition that founded Fort Langley in 1827.
- After Governor Douglas purchased the island, he gave it to his daughter Cecilia, and it became known as Douglas Island.
- Mary Hill - Named after Colonel Moody's wife, Mary. The Royal Engineers thought it would be a good idea to build a citadel here to defend New Westminster against any American invasion.
