Coquitlam in Bloom

Coquitlam Competes on a Global Scale

The City of Coquitlam is proud to have competed in the international 2017 Communities in Bloom competition. It was a great honour to have been considered among some of the most spectacular cities in the world. 

Judges toured the city to assess it on six categories: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays. They received a Community Profile Book (which can be viewed below) and toured more than 20 local ​sights. View the video highlighting the tour's moments ​and stops along the way. 

Coquitlam claimed second place in the civic pride and beautification competition, after Holland, Michigan, and received a ‘5 Blooms – Silver’ award. The city also received special mention for its tree risk management on Burke Mountain. 

Coquitlam’s 2017 entry built on the success and judge’s feedback from 2016, when the City was declared the national Communities in Bloom champion in the over-50,000 population category. It received a “5 blooms silver” rating and a special mention for Mackin House Museum and Mackin Park. This followed a 2015 provincial win, when Coquitlam was awarded 5 Blooms and declared B.C.’s Communities in Bloom champion.

The City of Coquitlam would like to thank the entire community for its efforts and participation!
