Westwood Summit is a small residential neighbourhood between David Avenue and Westwood Plateau. It’s location on the southwest slope of Eagle Mountain offers spectacular views to the south and east towards Mount Baker.
Westwood Summit is convenient to the hustle and bustle of Coquitlam’s Town Centre area and the charm of historic Port Moody.
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.
To the west, Port Moody’s Murray Street has become a hotbed for craft beer with four new breweries all within walking distance of each other. The city’s historic core, along adjacent Clarke Street, features some small shops, cafés, restaurants, and a glimpse into the way the area was when the Canadian Pacific Railway ended there.
Shuttle buses run along Lansdowne Avenue to connect to the new Evergreen extension of SkyTrain. The major transit hub at Coquitlam Central also accesses buses to other parts of the region as well as the West Coast Express commuter rail into Vancouver.
