Map of Things to do in Port Coquitlam

Port Coquitlam is a small city which once was envisioned to be a large port due to its strategic location but never materialized. The Canadian Pacific Railway is a large presence in the city (bisecting it in its middle with only two underpass roadways to cross over from either side), the Coast Meridian bridge which crosses the railway as well as several industrial and commercial businesses.

Poco has a few parks (other than Colony Farm Regional Park on its western edge) and trails due to its small size, but its biggest outdoor attraction is the Traboulay PoCo Trail, a twenty-five kilometre hiking and cycling path which circles the city.

Port Coquitlam has museums and several natural areas to enjoy throughout the year and visitors can enjoy views of the Fraser River and Poco's neighbouring cities across the water, Pitt Meadows and Surrey.
