Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
From waterfront walks to forested paths, Port Moody offers a wealth of green space.
Some parks, such as Old Orchard Park are small, beachside gems while others are geared to action-oriented pursuits: SK8 Park caters to skateboarders and BMX bikers with lots of ramps, rails, stairs and tabletop features while Inlet and Town Centre parks include fields and courts for sports such as soccer and tennis.
Belcarra Regional Park
Jutting into Indian Arm where it meets the Burrard Inlet, and covering some 1,100ha/2,718ac, this forested mountain park has been a summer getaway destination since the 1920s when boats used to bring day trippers from Vancouver's Coal Harbour to picnic, swim, hike for an hour or a full day, and fish.
Activities at Belcarra Park
Today this family park is as popular as ever with 22km/13.7mi of walking trails and 9.5km/6mi of cycling paths. White Pine Beach at Sasamat Lake is a hot spot for swimmers as much for its safe, warm waters and for its long stretches of sand. There's a wharf for crabbing, fishing or scuba diving.
The Belcarra picnic area, White Pine Beach and park washrooms are all wheelchair accessible.
