About Coquitlam in Bloom

Coquitlam in Bloom fosters community pride through programs that highlight the initiatives of local businesses, organizations, residents and municipal staff.

This year’s efforts were focused on youth, youth initiatives and keeping our city clean for future generations. This included a Pop-up Youth Park at Mundy Park, Fun Nights at the Stadium, community tidiness initiatives, the addition of the Chief of the Undersea World eco-sculpture at Town Centre Park, and the return of Coquitlam Munch edible gardens and pollinator gardens.

Initiatives also shined a spotlight on community sport – and all the people who help make it happen. It is often through our shared participation in community sport that we build community connections and community pride.

This year’s inactivates won the City first place in the International Communities in Bloom competition for large communities, earning global recognition for our community’s civic pride and beautification efforts.
