Harbour Chines is a prestigious neighbourhood of large homes on expansive lots located between St. Johns Street and Como Lake Avenue. Its steep slope offers many residents spectacular views across Burrard Inlet to Burke Mountain and eastward to the Golden Ears.
Harbour Chines is laced with parks and green space. It’s also close to Rocky Point Park, a family-friendly recreational destination on the eastern end of Burrard Inlet. The park features a boat launch, outdoor pool, spray park, bandshell, walking trails through a protected marshland and a picturesque pier. The Boathouse restaurant is located at the edge of the park and Rocky Point Ice Cream is a favourite gathering spot in the summer.
Nearby, Brewers Row features no less than four craft brewers all within walking distance of each other.
Along Harbour Chines’ upper edge, Como Lake and Mundy parks offer a variety of walking trails and other outdoor pursuits like fishing, baseball and swimming. The Poirier Sport and Leisure Centre, on Poirier Street, is also nearby. The 190,000 square foot Centre features hockey and curling rinks, fitness gymnasiums and a pool, as well as the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame.
St. John’s Street is a busy commercial strip of shops, restaurants and medical and financial services. A short drive to the east, the Coquitlam Town Centre area is a major retail hub.
