Port Coquitlam Hot Tub Covers
Welcome to Port Coquitlam! It’s located in the heart of the lower mainland, but has a small town feel that is surrounded by nature. You’ll feel like you’re actually miles away!
Port Coquitlam is one of the prettiest cities in Canada, and it’s also one of the safest. It is situated along the junction of the Pitt River and the Fraser River. Locals frequently refer to the city as “PoCo.” It is Canada’s 88th largest city.
Visitors and locals alike enjoy the Traboulay PoCo Trail. Whether you love to walk, skate, run or bike, this 25 kilometer trail will keep you in shape, while giving you a look at the best that nature has to offer. The landscape will never leave you bored, as it traverses through creeks, forests, meadows, marsh, riverfront and urban downtown. In fact, the trail is used by many locals to commute and get around the city.
Port Coquitlam is also home to one of Canada’s greatest icons, Terry Fox. This young man embarked on a run across Canada (after having his leg amputated due to cancer) to raise funds for cancer research. Sadly, Terry lost his battle in June of 1981, and did not complete his run. Today, Terry Fox runs are held each year across Canada to keep his memory alive and raise money for the cause he started.
If you’re looking for a great shopping experience, try the PoCo Place mall. You’ll find a wide variety of retailers who will serve your needs. Whether you’re looking for the latest fashions or the best quality spa covers, you’ll find it here!
Because of PoCo’s close proximity to Vancouver (it’s only 30 minutes away,) the city does not have its own NHL hockey team. That doesn’t mean, however, that there aren’t any hockey fans. You’ll find plenty of Vancouver Canucks fans, and they won’t hesitate to drive to the Vancouver Canucks Centre to cheer on the team of Canada’s national sport. Many locals will even go as far as to buy NHL logo hot tub covers to support their favourite teams.
If you love to learn more about nature, come out and experience the Hyde Creek Salmon Festival. It takes place each November, to catch a glimpse of salmon as they reach their spawning grounds. There are fun activities that take place throughout the day, including education displays, nature walks and sampling demonstrations.
May Day is a week-long festival that has been running since 1923. It includes fun and excitement for the whole family. Amusement rides, parades, music and much more are offered. It’s a great way to celebrate the arrival of spring!
If you’re up for an afternoon walk, go down to Shaughnessy Street, in the heart of downtown, and stroll the tree-lined sidewalks for a look at the historic and quaint buildings. Stop for a coffee or latte and browse through the many shops for unique or hand-made gifts. When you visit Port Coquitlam you definitely won’t be disappointed. Small town charm meets big-city sophistication here.
