Port Coquitlam

Home » Port Coquitlam
Located 27km east of the city of Vancouver, Port Coquitlam is known as “the city of rivers and mountains,” lovingly referred to as “PoCo.” It is a thriving community at the confluence of the Fraser and Pitt Rivers, situated between the Pitt and Coquitlam Rivers. Part of the Tri-Cities’ area, PoCo gathers anglers to try their luck independently or by guided fishing tours. The revitalized downtown remains village-like, with its original 1913 city hall and plaza of shops, restaurants, cafes and craft stores. The Colony Farm Regional Park’s lowland marsh is a sanctuary to birds and other wildlife, while the PoCo Trail, at 24-kilometres (14.9-miles), is extremely popular with walkers and bike riders alike. Originally mostly farmland, Port Coquitlam has become mostly suburban housing due to the densification and expansion of Vancouver. There is a diversified economy of industrial and commercial developments, and in 2021 the population was 61,498.
