Port Coquitlam is bounded on the south by the Fraser River, on the east by the Pitt River, on the north by the Coast Mountains, Including Burke and Coquitlam Mountains, and on the west by the Coquitlam River.

PoCo - as the residents call it affectionately - is close to Vancouver and the availability of level lands for workshops and yards originally attracted the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, which moved its freight operations to the site of Port Coquitlam from Vancouver in 1911.

Port Coquitlam's central location and unique setting along the Pitt and Fraser Rivers combine to produce truly exceptional living and recreation environments.

As the geographical centre of the Lower Mainland, Port Coquitlam offers easy westbound access via road or commuter rail to downtown Vancouver and eastbound access to the rapidly developing Fraser Valley.

New residential developments and increased commercial and industrial activity allow Port Coquitlam's 47,000 residents to live a small city lifestyle and enjoy big city amenities.

Recent growth has revitalized Port Coquitlam while providing increasing number of new jobs and new services.

For example, Shaughnessy Station, a 20-acre development with 164,000 square feet of commercial building space, has Safeway and Canadian Tire as anchor tenants with retail, banking and office space available. The downtown core and northside centre provide excellent shopping, as well as commercial and professional services.

Port CoquitlamOpportunities for recreation and leisure activities are plentiful in Port Coquitlam. The newly-renovated Hyde Creek Centre has something for everyone: lengths pool, water park, courts, gymnasium, teen centre, pro shop and restaurant. The city's other indoor recreational facility, the PoCo Recreation Centre, features two ice rinks.

If golf is your game, Carnoustie Golf & Country Club is open to the public year round. For hikers, joggers, cyclists and horseback riders, the popular PoCo Trail offers a unique experience as it winds its way through the city's natural and residential areas, providing an easy escape to nature. The trail is accessible from points throughout the city. Portions of the trail closely follow the rivers and provide excellent opportunities to observe waterfowl and other wildlife. The region's pleasant climate allows outdoor activities to take place year round, including swimming, boating, fishing, golfing and hiking.

To encourage future development, Port Coquitlam has streamlined its development procedures to promote continued investment in the city. Although development has been brisk in recent years, there remains many hundreds of acres ready for development. Compared to the rest of the region, Port Coquitlam has relatively affordable housing. This, combined with the industrial and commercial lands, have made it the choice location of a large number of progressive enterprises. Experience the continuing small town hospitality that sets Port Coquitlam apart as a place of residence and business within the 'Lower Mainland'.
