Coquitlam strives to provide community recreation experiences for people of all ages and abilities. Contact the Community Services team to discuss how we can best support your visit:

Access to adapted equipment

Children and Youth Programs
Families with children and youth in registered recreation programs are encouraged to complete Recreation Support Request Form a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the program.
A recreation support plan can support your child’s experience by:
Providing key information to program leaders on how best to support your child’s unique needs
Identifying strategies to help your child stay engaged and having fun
Having supports such as visual cards and noise minimizing headphones available
Ensuring program spaces meet accessibility requirements
Note: recreation staff cannot administer medication or assist with dressing, feeding or toileting.
Patrons who require direct support to safely enjoy our services can bring a support person with them at no additional cost. It is expected the support person will be with the customer throughout their visit and be fully engaged in supporting them. Please let the front know upon arrival.
