Getting to Lights at Lafarge Head to Lafarge Lake at Coquitlam's Town Centre Park. Visitors are encouraged to take the SkyTrain to the Lafarge Lake - Douglas SkyTrain station, which drops you off right at the park. For bus options, use TransLink's Trip Planner.
There is limited on-site parking, and due to the popularity of this event it can get busy. If you’re driving to Town Centre Park, check the City’s digital parking counters to view real time parking availability.
Accessibility Pathways are lit and user-friendly for visitors of all abilities. The 1.2-km trail is flat and mostly paved, accessible by strollers and mobility devices, although there is one section of finely packed gravel.
There are accessible washrooms located on the Pinetree Way side of the Lafarge Lake trail loop and near Parking Lot D next to the tennis courts.
