Coquitlam – New Horizons
1233-1235 River Dr, Coquitlam, BC V3E 1N7, Canada
The Coquitlam River that runs along the edge of New Horizons, is a natural oasis. Salmon and even the occasional trout provide sport for fishers. A network of trails that line the riverbanks is great for hikes or just a casual stroll. And for the more adventurous, an inner tube ride down the river can provide cooling relief on a hot summer’s day.
Nearby, Town Centre Park is Coquitlam’s showcase outdoor sport and recreation facility with numerous artificial and natural turf pitches for soccer, field hockey, field lacrosse, baseball, softball and football, as well as a track and field facilities at Percy Perry Stadium. For less rigorous recreation, the park also features walking trails that wind around Lafarge Lake, a five-hectare man-made lake that was originally a quarry.
Next to the lake, the Evergreen Cultural Centre features a 257-seat theatre for live performances, a rehearsal hall, art studios and an art gallery.
Across Pinetree Way, the City Centre Aquatic Complex hosts activities for the whole family, from a wave pool, to competitive swimming and synchronized swimming to fitness programs for all ages.
Next to it, the Coquitlam campus of Douglas College helps serve more than 14,000 credit students and 9,000 continuing education students in programs that range from Criminology to Sport Science.
The Coquitlam Centre, which is also nearby, is one of British Columbia’s largest regional shopping malls.
New Horizons is close to the Lafarge Lake-Douglas terminus station of the new Evergreen extension to SkyTrain. The 11 kilometre extension through Coquitlam and Port Moody connects at Lougheed Station to the Millennium line into Burnaby, New Westminster and Vancouver.
The nearby Coquitlam Central station is a major bus hub as well as for the West Coast Express commuter train service into and out of Vancouver every weekday.
