About Port Coquitlam

Located on the Lougheed Highway, Port Coquitlam is about 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver. A tiny city sitting where the Fraser and the Pitt Rivers meet, the township is a suburban enclave of Coquitlam city in the north. The Coquitlam River is in the west and it is basically split in two by the highway. Often referred to as "PoCo", it is a part of the "Tri-Cities" with Port Moody and Coquitlam.

There isn't much here but for the "twitters" there is the Colony Farm Regional Park where you can gawk through your binoculars for hours and the hikers can take one of the 8.5 km trails to explore. There is also the Traboulay PoCo Trail along the river, perfectly constructed for those that like to ride a bike. It's mostly flat so you won't have to wear yourself out too much.

If you get out of town you can visit the North Shore area that includes Grouse Mountain, a suspension bridge and go hiking in one of the parks. There is the historic Steveston village, the place to find the largest Buddhist temple in North America and where during the summer months, a night market is held. Vancouver's zoo, hot springs and a few local wineries are all heading east on Highway 7.
