Parks, Recreation & Culture Services

Parks, Recreation and Culture Services’ vision is to create exceptional experiences for everyone in Coquitlam by creating parks, recreation, and cultural experiences that are innovative, balanced and accessible to all while supporting healthy lifestyles and social connections. Key goals for the Department are encouraging physical activity, volunteerism, the development of new skills, fostering an appreciation of nature, protecting parks and cultural assets for future generations and contributing to the economic vibrancy of the City.

City parks and facilities are designed and maintained to create a positive experience whether for organized groups or casual activity. The City’s recreation and culture centres encourage active participation for all ages and ability levels in friendly, welcoming environments. There is always something new to learn or a new friend to meet through Coquitlam’s recreation and cultural opportunities, whether interests are in lifelong learning, health and fitness, sports, performing arts, swimming, skating, arts and crafts, day camps and more.

The Department also liaises with community organizations including cultural groups who utilize civic facilities and services to deliver a wide range of programs and events such as the Coquitlam Public Library, Place des Arts, Evergreen Cultural Centre, Mackin House and Place Maillardville.
