Port & Mill: Nature All Around
Sep 08th, 2020
West Coquitlam is an incredibly central location. Not only will you find urban conveniences and transit at your Port & Mill doorstep, you’ll have access to several big and small pockets of nature. From salty shorelines to tranquil lakes to rugged forest trails, you’ll be faced with countless options when you’re in the mood for a dose of nature.
Hike or mountain bike the 26 verdant trails that cover 28 kilometres across Burnaby Mountain. With dense tree coverage and no sounds of traffic, you’ll forget you’re close to a city and to home. If you reach the top of the mountain, you’re in for another treat — views that stretch to the North Shore Mountains, down Burrard Inlet, and up Indian Arm. Walk in awe through the Playground of the Gods, a collection of Kamui Mintara sculptures, or take a deep, relaxing breath in the Centennial Rose Garden. It’s all less than an eight-minute drive from home.
ROCKY POINT PARK & SHORELINE PARK
Hop on the SkyTrain for a quick five-minute ride from Burquitlam to Moody Centre, where you’ll find the picturesque shores of Rocky Point Park. Have an ice cream and walk out on the pier, or explore the adjacent Shoreline Trails. There’s also an outdoor pool and a spray park for family fun. Take an easel and join the other artists painting pictures of the stunning landscape.
COMO LAKE PARK
A relaxing one-kilometre walk or jog around this serene and small lake is all you need to feel the weight of your day drop from your shoulders. Pack a picnic, play a casual soccer game on an open field, or watch your kids climb the playground. You’ll love the cherry blossoms that burst from their branches each spring.
VANCOUVER GOLF CLUB
You can fit a game of golf into every weekend when there’s a golf course only five minutes from home. Gather some friends or cherish some alone time on the beautifully manicured lawns of the Vancouver Golf Club, the oldest golf club in the Lower Mainland.
