One of the Municipality of Pembina's LUD's, Darlingford has much to offer. Nestled in the heart of Southern Manitoba, opportunities for recreation are numerous. 
This is one rural community you will want to pull off the main highway to explore. In the summer months, among the many gardens of flowers welcoming everyone, all planted and cared for by the caring people of the community, you will also find some very unique historic attractions in this small community. There is a great playground for the children if they are need to stretch their legs and blow off some steam.
 As a LUD, Darlingford is over-seen by a committee consisting of;
  • a councillor of the municipality appointed by the municipal council; and
  • not more than three elected members of the local urban district.
Committee members are elected for a four-year term and are responsible for;
  • preparing an annual budget for the community and referring it to the Municipal Council
  • ensuring that activities outlined in the budget are carried out
  • dealing with citizen's concerns
  • holding at least one community meetings each year

Darlingford was once home to grades 1-12 school, telephone exchange, post office and a variety of businesses including grocery stores, banks, gas stations, restaurants,
several churches, a farm implements dealership, hardware store and lumber yard.
Today, a church, auto repair and post office remain. The school has been converted into a museum and meeting room.
While many businesses are gone, the heart of the community resides in the roughly 250 people who make this their home.

Darlingford was founded by James Ephraim Law, builder of the first house in the town. The Law cairn was erected and is a tribute to the steadfast love of family and community that was inherent in the life of John Oliver and Sara Law. They instilled these same virtues in their thirteen children that they raised on this very site. John Oliver is the son of James Ephriam Law. James was said to have purchased this NW8-3-7W in 1898 but the registration did not take place until 1902.

A Manitoba Historical Plaque was erected in Darlingford by the province to commemorate Darlingford Memorial and Park's role in Manitoba's heritage.

In 1921, Darlingford and the surrounding district commemorated their military efforts and their war dead by constructing a small Gothic-inspired memorial building and park. The Darlingford Memorial Park was largely inspired by Ferris Bolton, a pioneer farmer and politician from Darlingford, whose three sons were killed in France in 1917. Maintained today by local volunteers, it remains the only free-standing memorial building in Manitoba with the sole function of commemorating the war dead. Two black marble tablets inside the structure display the names of 199 local veterans and victims of both World War I and World War II. The memorial was designated a Manitoba Provincial Heritage Site on March 29, 1991 by the Government of Manitoba.
