What is Coquitlam in Bloom?

The Coquitlam in Bloom program fosters community pride for green space enhancements through stewardship events and initiatives such as Park Spark, Adopt-a-Park, and Bad Seed community weed pulls.

The 2019 Coquitlam in Bloom initiatives 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, free sports equipment libraries, and the return of Coquitlam Munch edible gardens and pollinator gardens.

Initiatives also shined a spotlight on community sport – and all the people who make it happen. The City would like to thank to the volunteers, players, coaches and club executives who play important roles in our sporting community.
