Jamie’s favourite spots!
Coquitlam Crunch Trail
The Coquitlam Crunch is practically our neighbor. You can find us on this steep, staircase trail, at least a few times a week. The trail is 4.5 km and is a shorter, less intense climb than the Grouse Grind.
Lansdowne Drive Drive, Coquitlam
When we’re craving a nature walk, we love to walk the trails at Mundy Park! The perimeter trail is our favorite. It’s 4 km long and loops around the entire park.
641 Hillcrest St, Coquitlam (604) 927-6915
Town Centre Park
We love Town Centre park. This park is a destination site for sports, recreation, and leisure. We like to walk around the track or the lake, play at the playground, basketball courts, water park, and skate park. They even have beach volleyball! This park also holds many festivals that we enjoy attending.
1299 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, (604) 927-6300
Rocky Point Park
Since we live a five minute drive to Port Moody, we visit Rocky Point Park often. The park is stunning, surrounded by water and mountains. We come here to hike, bike, picnic, play at the playground, and visit the outdoor pool, yummy Pajo’s fish and chips, ice cream shop and sometimes rent kayaks!
2800 Block Murray Street, Port Moody
Strong Start Program
Once in a while, I bring my daughter to the Strong Start Early Learning Program at Bramblewood Elementary School. M-F from 9 am-11:30 am caregivers and children can enjoy a preschool, play- based environment, with an enthusiastic instructor.
2875 Panorama Drive, Coquitlam
City Centre Aquatics Complex
Our family loves to go swimming, especially at City Centre Aquatics wave pool. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings they offer a drop in program called lil dippers, and the cost is only $2!
1210 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, (604) 927-6999
Sushi Town is our go-to for inexpensive, yummy sushi.
