In the vibrant hub of Central Coquitlam, you can fill your day with fun activities that won’t break the budget.

Go skating or swimming at the state-of-the-art Poirier Sport & Leisure Complex, explore the forested trails at Mundy Park, go fishing for trout at Como Lake Park, or take a summer stroll and smell the 800-plus roses at the Centennial Rose Garden and photograph the First Nations totem pole. If you’re visiting on a Sunday between May and October, drop into the Coquitlam Farmers Market to peruse the stands and pick up goods that are made, baked, grown or raised in B.C.
