In partnership with the City of Coquitlam, the Municipal Engineers Division presents a tour of the Coquitlam Douglas Skytrain Station and surrounding open spaces, including Town Centre Park, as well as developments at Port Moody Inlet Centre Station. The tour will be followed by a networking session at a local brewery.

Please join us for this tour of the Lafarge Lake – Douglas Millenium Line Skytrain Station in Coquitlam, to discuss the open space concepts and construction history of the station and surrounding area, including Town Centre Park. After hearing about this area, participants will take the Skytrain westwards and disembark at Inlet Centre station to hear about this area and travel through Rocky Point Park. The goal of the tour is to learn and appreciate open spaces and how they are conceptualized and built in urban environments.

After the tour portion of the event, we will visit Yellow Dog Brewing Co. to enjoy a networking session.
