SPRING/SUMMER 2018 MAY – AUGUST

Welcome to Coquitlam

Parks, Recreation & Culture Services

We’ve all been looking forward to some warmer and drier weather—along with the good times that come with it. Here’s a peek at what’s in store in Coquitlam in the coming months.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THESE EVENTS It wouldn’t be summer in Coquitlam without enjoying one—or all—of our wonderful special events and festivals. The fun starts July 1 at Town Centre Park with Coquitlam Celebrates Canada Day, named one of the top 20 festivals in Metro Vancouver by Business in Vancouver. Our live Friday night Summer Concert Series is also back at Town Centre Park for year two, running July 13, Aug. 3 and Sept. 7 in the beautiful plaza. Don’t miss the Kaleidoscope Arts Festival on Aug. 11, a magical day showcasing talented musicians, artists, dancers, storytellers, artisans and more, at Town Centre Park. You can also get to know your neighbours better this summer with the Neighbourhood Nights series, which brings free family activities to parks across the city. Check out coquitlam.ca/events for information about these and other events.

POP-UP ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND Did your parents ever tell you to “make your own fun” when you were growing up? That’s the idea behind the Pop-Up Adventure Playground that will be open July and August in the Coquitlam City Centre area. Don’t expect the typical colourful, structured play equipment. This free monitored drop-in play space will encourage kids age three to 12 to let their imaginations run wild as they play with planks of wood, tires, milk crates, rope, tarps and other materials. It’s part of a growing playground trend that encourages kids to be curious and creative, to engage with their surroundings, and to test their limits within an environment of managed risk. Watch for information on our website as summer approaches. coquitlam.ca/adventureplayground

OUR SERVICES Coquitlam has programs, events and activities for residents of all ages and abilities. Take your dog for a run in an off-leash park, catch a tournament at Town Centre Park or enjoy the fresh air on a hike through one of our many trails. Whether you’re into yoga, swimming, arts or hiking, there is always something new to learn or a new friend to meet through Coquitlam recreation. Now is the time to try it, learn it, live it! Find out more about what Coquitlam has to offer at coquitlam.ca/prc

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE CLOSURE Each year our pools must close for maintenance. Yearly maintenance is necessary in order to meet public safety standards and service expectations. The pools are open to the public up to 17 hours per day, everyday, and the systems run continuously. During the closure, we’re able to complete maintenance work that cannot be done while the facility is in use. These closures are essential for extending the life of the City’s assets, reducing the likelihood of program interruptions due to mechanical failure and ensuring a safe environment for all staff and patrons.

Weed Out Invasive Plants

Bring Coquitlam Parks Alive!

We need your help: ´´ learn how to identify invasive plants and avoid planting or buying; ´´ never dump garden waste or hanging baskets into natural areas; ´´ volunteer for a local weed pull event to help remove invasive plants from a park; and ´´ dispose of invasive plant material in your Green Cart. For more information or to volunteer visit coquitlam.ca/badseed or email parks@coquitlam.ca

GETTING ALONG IN OUR NATURAL WORLD There’s lots to consider when you live in an urban environment that is so close to nature. Coquitlam has some helpful information and resources so you can enjoy the best of the natural world and protect it at the same time.

Be Bear Smart

2018 The City of Coquitlam is proud to have competed in the International 2017 Communities in Bloom competition. We claimed second place in the civic pride and beautification competition, after Holland, Michigan, and received a ‘5 Blooms—Silver’ award. We also received special mention for the tree risk management on Burke Mountain. It was a great honour to have been considered among some of the most spectacular cities in the world. In 2018 we are entering the International category once again and hope to achieve 5 Blooms—Gold! Judges will tour the city to assess it on six categories: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays; while touring more than 20 local sights. Visit our webpage and look for how to get involved in this year’s initiatives! In the meantime you can: • Help keep Coquitlam tidy and litter-free. • Help beautify the places where you live, work or spend time—consider planting a garden, tidying up the property and improving street appeal. • Protect our pollinators! Consider making your own pollinator garden this spring. • Join a Bad Seed weed pull and learn how to stop the introduction and spread of plants that can be harmful to people, animals and ecosystems. Find out more at coquitlam.ca/cib Course fees do not include applicable taxes. Details subject to change.

We live on nature’s doorstep and bears, cougars, coyotes, deer, raccoon, skunks and other wildlife are part of our environment. It is important that we avoid encouraging them to our properties by removing attractants, such as garbage, fruit, pet food and bird seed. Failure to keep attractants secure from wildlife is subject to a $500 fine under the City’s Wildlife and Vector Control Bylaw. Visit coquitlam.ca/urbanwildlife to learn how to make your home and property wildlife-resistant.

Pesticides Say “No” to Harmful Pesticides—We Did! Coquitlam has a Pesticide Use Control bylaw that bans many conventional pesticides typically used for garden and lawn beautification or maintenance. Although you will see them for sale they cannot be used on residential and City land in Coquitlam. There are safe alternatives that are healthier for everyone—people, pets and the environment! For a full list of products you can use and for more information, visit coquitlam.ca/pesticides

Beetlemania The European Chafer Beetle! The European Chafer beetle is an invasive insect pest. Its larvae feed on the roots of grasses, causing serious damage to lawns. It is most visible when raccoons, birds and other wildlife, eager to eat the grubs, begin digging up grasses and damaging turf. Visit coquitlam.ca/chaferbeetle for year-round lawn care tips to prevent Chafer beetle damage and info on nematode control treatments which are a safe alternative to banned pesticides. Visit coquitlam.ca/chaferbeetle for a year-round calendar of lawn care tips and info on nematodes which are a safe alternative to banned pesticides.

COQUITLAM’S WASTE COLLECTION PROGRAM IMPORTANT NEW GARBAGE & RECYCLING COLLECTION SCHEDULE EFFECTIVE MARCH 12, 2018 FIND OUT MORE COQUITLAM.CA/TRASHTALK | 604-927-3500 WHY IS THE COLLECTION SCHEDULE CHANGING? Reports of conflicts between wildlife and humans have been increasing in recent years. To respond to this growing concern, the City is splitting garbage zones into morning and afternoon collection zones in order to reduce the amount of time carts sit at the curb. This allows for earlier collection in areas that are more prone to wildlife encounters.

Collection reminders just for you! View, download & print your personalized curbside collection schedule or set-up a weekly reminder by phone, email, text or twitter.

WASTE WIZARD Use this simple, online tool to search the name of an item and let the Waste Wizard provide you details on where to recycle the item. coquitlam.ca/wastewizard

SEASONAL UNLIMITED YARD TRIMMINGS During the fall and spring season we know many residents have extra yard trimmings that do not fit into their Green Cart. The City adds additional trucks to each route to manually collect yard trimmings from kraft paper bags or old cans with “Green Can” stickers on them. Next session April 2 May 11, 2018. Mark your calendar so you can get your spring clean-up done! Visit coquitlam.ca/yardtrimmings for spring dates and details.
