Things to Do

Port Moody's natural setting gives a soft, wilderness edge to some of Metro Vancouver's urbanized communities.
At weekends, Vancouverites flock to its parks and waterways for hiking and water activities. Many city folk moor their pleasure craft in BC's largest marina: Reed Point.
Port Moody's gentle tides make kayaking a pleasure and its crescent shape shoreline is always busy with walkers, joggers and cyclists. The forested mountainside is home to Belcarra Provincial Park with its lovely lake and network of hiking trails, as well as Buntzen Lake Recreation Area, popular for its boating, fishing and many hiking trails. Several trails are suitable for mountain bikes.
The north side of Belcarra drops into Indian Arm, one of Metro Vancouver's most significant fjords that can only be explored by boat. Beyond Belcarra, set high on Eagle Mountain in neighbouring Coquitlam, the scenic Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club is within easy reach, and offers a challenging 18-hole, par 72 course.
