Coquitlam – Park Ridge Estates
ATE 1377 OXFORD ST, COQUITLAM, BC V3E 3G4, CANADA
Park Ridge Estates is a new development cut into the side of Burke Mountain. Forests and hiking trails are practically right outside your front door. Peace and quiet are all around.
But all the shopping, recreation and cultural amenities of Coquitlam’s bustling Town Centre area are nearby.
Coquitlam Centre is one of British Columbia’s largest regional shopping malls.
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.
Transit in the immediate neighbourhood is still fairly limited. But the Lafarge Lake-Douglas station to the new Evergreen extension of SkyTrain that can take commuters to most of Metro Vancouver is just a short drive away.
The intersection of Lougheed and Barnet highways can quickly take motorists west toward Burnaby and Vancouver or east toward Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge.
Park Ridge Estates real estate
Park Ridge Estates is still a relatively new neighbourhood, so its supply of single-family homes is limited.
