Ranch Park is a hillside neighbourhood of quiet, winding tree-lined streets overlooking Coquitlam’s busy Town Centre area. It’s located between Mariner Way, Chilko Drive and the Lougheed Highway.
Ranch Park’s sloping geography provides many homes with unparalleled views across Coquitlam’s Town Centre towards Burke Mountain and the Golden Ears to the east.
The neighbourhood is centrally located to parks, schools, shopping, recreation and cultural facilities.
At the top of Ranch Park, just across Mariner Way, Mundy Park is a 436-acre forested park with an extensive network of trails for hiking, walking or running, as well as an outdoor pool, sports fields, baseball diamonds and a playground and picnic area.
Below the neighbourhood, 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.
Ranch Park is close to the Coquitlam Central station where commuters can connect to the new Evergreen extension of SkyTrain, the West Coast Express rail service into Vancouver or buses for trips around Coquitlam or into Port Coquitlam.
