The City of Coquitlam Block Party program was created to encourage personal gatherings for neighbours to connect and create a sense of community in our residential neighbourhoods. Block parties are a great way to build new friendships and enhance safety and awareness in the neighbourhood.

The City of Coquitlam Tree Spree initiative focuses on recognizing and promoting the value of Coquitlam's tree canopy. As part of Tree Spree's inaugural year, we've committed to planting 10,000 trees.
Apply to receive, plant and learn how to care for free ornamental trees. If your block is eligible, Tree Spree ambassadors will deliver small to medium sized ornamental trees to your block party for planting on private property.

Approved block parties are eligible for a $150 grant. Information about how to receive the grant will be included in the approval package. In short:
