Summit View is a small neighbourhood that winds its way up the side of Coquitlam Mountain between Scott and Eagle creeks. Many of the homes enjoy spectacular views to the south and east towards Mt. Baker.
Summit View’s steep streets make the neighbourhood feel like a mountainside getaway. But it’s close to all the shopping, recreational and cultural amenities of Coquitlam’s Town Centre, and not far from West Coast wilderness at Belcarra.
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.
Head west along Ioco Road for about 15 minutes to get a true taste of West Coast splendour at Belcarra Regional Park, where a walk along its pier or its vast network of forested trails will reward you with sightings of soaring eagles and spectacular vistas up Indian Arm or across Burrard Inlet to North Burnaby. Wilderness hiking trails into the surrounding mountains can also be accessed at Buntzen Lake and Anmore.
A shuttle bus service along Landowne Drive goes into the Town Centre area when commuters can connect to the West Coast Express commuter rail service or the new Evergreen extension of SkyTrain.
