SPRING/SUMMER 2019 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 the opportunity to enjoy 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 three, running July 12, Aug. 2 and Sept. 6 in the beautiful TD Community Plaza. Don’t miss the Kaleidoscope Arts Festival on Aug. 10, 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 and schoolgrounds across the City. Check out coquitlam.ca/events for information about these and other events.

NEW ACTION PLAN FOR SENIORS’ PROGRAMMING In February, we adopted a new Parks, Recreation & Culture Seniors Services Action Plan to guide 50+ programming in our city over the next decade. What does that mean for our growing population of 50+ residents? Essentially, the aim is to provide services and programs that encourage life-long physical activity and that reflect the interests and changing needs of those age 50 and up. Among other things, we’ll be looking at types of activities, fees, times, locations, access, volunteer opportunities and marketing in the months and years ahead, in consultation with users. Full details, including this year’s action items, are available at coquitlam.ca/seniorsstrategy

STAY COOL THIS SUMMER Beat the heat at one of our many outdoor pools, spray parks and wading pools, open from late June to early September. Find one near you at coquitlam.ca/outdoorpools.

Check out the guide for more ideas about how to spend your spring and summer!

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

• Ongoing park-care activities—Help take care of a park on your own schedule by joining the Adopt-A-Park Program.

• Never dump garden waste or hanging baskets into natural areas;

• Drop-in park activities—View upcoming events and examples of past drop-ins on the Park Spark web site.

• Volunteer for a local weed pull event to help remove invasive plants from a park; and

• Unique volunteer opportunities: It’s never too early to talk about the Lights at Lafarge Display! We are looking for volunteers to help us fabricate elements for the light display in the months leading up to the big day. Please contact us for more details!

• 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 Be Wild Smart We live on nature’s doorstep and bears, cougars, coyotes, raccoon and other wildlife are part of our environment. It is important that we avoid encouraging them to our property by removing attractants, such as garbage, fruit, pet food and bird seed. »» Put a lid on it—Secure your Garbage and Green Carts & all attractants in an area inaccessible to wildlife. Place carts & recycling at the curb after 5:30 a.m.

Sign Up Online

coquitlam.ca/recollect

»» Keep it clean—Clean barbeques & outdoor spaces—pick up fallen fruit and suspend bird feeders and clean up fallen seed. »» Be a good neighbour—Share what you know! Failure to keep attractants secure from wildlife is subject to a $500 fine—visit coquitlam.ca/urbanwildlife for details.

Be Fire Smart During the summer months our parks are at an increased risk of fire. »» Do not smoke in parks—fines increase to $500 during summer. »» Do not litter cigarette butts—doing so can result in a fine. »» Do not have open fires or conduct outdoor burning. »» Place your barbeque well away from your home structure & do not leave unattended. »» Relocate flammable debris away from your home. »» Be aware when mowing your lawn the blade does not connect with a rock causing a spark that may ignite fire. »» Ensure your vehicle's exhaust does not emit onto a dry lawn.

Train Your Human! BYLAW OFFICERS ARE IN COQUITLAM PARKS HELPING TO ENSURE THAT OUR OUTDOOR SPACES ARE USER-FRIENDLY FOR ALL PEOPLE AND ANIMALS. Here are three key things you can do to help ensure that you and your owner are being responsible park users:

»» Reduce the amount of 'fuel' around your home—prune shrubs & remove dry vegetation.

»

Ensure you are connected to your human on a leash—except in designated off-leash areas.

»» Break up continuous vegetation so there is no continuous canopy leading to your home.

»

Ensure your human is cleaning up your waste.

»

Ensure your human has renewed your dog licence.

»» Keep your roof and gutters clear of dead needles. »» During home renos, use materials that can reduce a fire’s spread & extend length of time for a home to ignite and burn. »» Be alert to signs of fire & report any signs of smoke or fire by calling 911 immediately.

VOLUNTEERING

GAIN EXPERIENCE, GET INVOLVED, BECOME A VOLUNTEER! If you are at least 13 year old, we've got so many fun activities to get involved with. Gain valuable skills, meet new people, engage with your community, and most importantly, have fun! To volunteer with Coquitlam, follow these 4 easy steps: 1. Create a Volunteer Profile Go to coquitlam.ca/volunteerprc to create your own volunteer profile. This is where you'll be able to see what opportunities are available, sign up for volunteer shifts, and track your volunteer hours.

2. Provide References While creating volunteer profile, provide two references for Volunteer Services to contact to help us learn more a little more about your skills and experiences. References should be over the age of 19 and not a relative.

3. Complete a Police Information Check All volunteers are required to submit a Police Information Check. Forms will emailed to you upon creating a volunteer profile. There is no cost for prospective volunteers.

BE A RECREATION BUDDY! A recreation buddy is a volunteer who supports someone with a disability to help them participate fully in our registered recreation programs. Recreation buddies can assist in sport programs, cooking, arts and crafts, swimming and ice skating lessons—or even preschool programs. They do not support with activities of daily living: toileting, transferring, changing, etc. Contact Volunteer Services if you or someone you know might benefit from the support of a recreation buddy, or if you’re interested in volunteering as a recreation buddy.   volunteers@coquitlam.ca 

 604-927-6922

4. Attend an Orientation Session After successfully completing the reference and Police Information checks, you will receive an invitation to attend an orientation session. At the orientation, you will learn about volunteer roles and expectations as well as how to sign up for volunteer activities. Course fees do not include applicable taxes. Details subject to change.
