This neighbourhood is known for its spectacular parks including Mundy Park and Como Lake Park. Often referred to as the jewel of Coquitlam, Mundy Park’s 178-hectare natural space attracts visitors from near and far. It features a 5.5 km pathway encircling the park as well as interior trails on a scenic loop around two lakes. Como Lake Park is another popular 1-km lakeside trail walk with a playground, picnic benches and fishing for catchable-size rainbow trout in the lake. It is home to the annual Como Lake Fishing Derby.
