Coquitlam is one of the fastest growing cities in Metro Vancouver because it offers affordable housing, scenic views and accessibility to transit, parks, shopping and outdoor recreation. Not only is it close to the Vancouver and Abbotsford International airports, it is also minutes to the US Border. In 2016, the Evergreen Line was opened allowing even quicker accessibility to and from different parts of the city and the Lower Mainland.
Coquitlam is surrounded by nature with its beautiful parks including Mundy Park, Town Centre Park, Como Lake Park, Minnekhada Regional Park, and Pinecone Burke Provincial Park to name a few. It is also the home to Douglas College’s David Lam Campus which serves over 4000 students.
Coquitlam also has excellent amenities including the Chimo Pool, Poirer Sports and Leisure Complex, City Centre Library and the City Centre Aquatic Centre.
With the vast amenities, parks, shopping, and transportation, it is no wonder that many families are moving to Coquitlam.
