About Park Spark

Park Spark is your chance to have fun and gain meaningful experiences while enhancing Coquitlam’s parks. We offer a variety of opportunities for people to lend their expertise or experiences to connect with our parks.

Opportunities include:

  • Ongoing park care activities – Help take care of a park on your own schedule.
  • Drop-in volunteer activities – View upcoming events and examples of past drop-in activities below.
  • Group park projects – Involve your business, community group or school in a fun park project.
  • Park amenity additions – Donate a Little Library to your local park.
    Little Libraries are small wooden structures where people are free to take and leave books.

What's Happening

Park Pop​ Ups

Park Spark will be hosting a series of ‘park pop ups’ throughout Coquitlam ​parks over the summer. Park pop ups are a spontaneous way to have fun, engage with the community, and gain meaningful experiences while enhancing Coquitlam parks. Various pop up themes include: park clean ups, pollinator information, forest bathing/green bathing, and many more! Times and locations will be posted on Coquitlam social media.

Lights at Lafarge Winter Lights Display

Thank you to our Corporate and Media Partners, volunteers and community groups who helped make this year's lights display a huge success.

A big thank you also to all the Coquitlam residents, family and friends who joined us at Town Centre Park this year. See you again in November!
