Discover Port Coquitlam
Lougheed Sign for Discover Port Coquitlam

It’s located right in the heart of the Lower Mainland, but Port Coquitlam’s natural setting and small-town feel make it feel miles away.

Escape from the bustle on the Traboulay PoCo Trail, one of Port Coquitlam’s premier attractions. Visitors and locals alike use this 25-kilometre loop trail to experience nature, get some exercise and even to get around.

Walk or cycle the flat 10-kilometre stretch along the Fraser and Pitt rivers, enjoying stunning views of farmland and mountains along the way. Spot the many bird species in the wetlands and DeBoville Slough. You’ll see the best of the community along the trail, which traverses forest and creek, meadow and marsh, riverfront and urban development.

When you’re ready for a snack and some shopping, make your way to Port Coquitlam’s historic and authentic downtown. Pick up a latté and stroll along charming Shaughnessy Street, lined with trees and shops for browsing. A variety of other services and shopping areas are a quick walk or drive away.

And for a taste of some old-fashioned small-town spirit and family fun, visit Port Coquitlam during one of its many community festivals.
