Celebrate Family Day Safely in Coquitlam

Family Skating

COQUITLAM, B.C., Feb. 10, 2022 – It’s easy to create special memories with your family over the long weekend as our recreation and parks teams have a variety of activities to keep us active, entertained—and safe—while we celebrate Family Day in Coquitlam.

From Friday, Feb. 18 to the holiday Monday, Feb. 21, the City is offering a variety of activities for the whole family. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia for many of Coquitlam’s Family Day activities.

All Ages Skating and Swimming 

Families looking to skate or swim have a range of options at City Centre Aquatic Complex (1210 Pinetree Way) and Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (633 Poirier St.). Enjoy a family or leisure swim in the wave pool; or get on the ice for a public skate. View drop-in schedules and admission rates at www.coquitlam.ca/dropin

Celebrate Family Day at Coquitlam’s Community Centres

Centennial Activity Centre (578 Poirier St.) will have pre-registered Multi-Sport Open Gym times available on Feb. 21 for families with kids ages 1 to 5 years old (course ID #81442) and six years or older (course ID #81440). This activity is available for pre-registration 48-hours in advance. 

Across town, Pinetree Community Centre (1260 Pinetree Way) will have activities on Feb. 20, including crafts, free play, jumbo games and more for families with kids up to 5 years old (course ID #81538) and six to 12 years old (course ID #81539).
