The City of Coquitlam reminds you that during winter stormy weather, our City crews’ priorities are to maintain accessibility for emergency and transit vehicles on the collector, arterial, emergency and bus routes that connect major sections of our community.

TIPS FOR COQUITLAM RESIDENTS It is your responsibility to clear all sidewalks around your house within 10 hours after the end of any snowfall or ice storm. Snow that gets redeposited by any means must be re-cleared.

If you have a fire hydrant in front of your home, please clear the snow around it. This will enable the fire department to locate the hydrant in case of an emergency.

Do not park on the road or in the lane following a snowfall. Parked vehicles block snow plows.

Do not drive unless you absolutely have to and only if you have good snow tires.

Locate and clean catch basin grates in the roadway in front of your house. This helps prevent flooding of your property.

During a snow event, you can report an area of concern by using our real-time Snow Response Request tool available at coquitlam.ca/winterwise.

Our Parks team is just wrapping up Phase Two of Coquitlam’s Park Blitz program, a three-year plan to revitalize 12 aging parks in Southwest Coquitlam.

Bring Coquitlam Parks Alive!

In 2018, the program focused on updates to Cape Horn, Meadowbrook and Mariner parks, as well as the Poirier Tot Lot at Poirier Community Centre. Improvements included new playground equipment, new pathways, retaining walls, upgraded landscaping and irrigation, new furnishings (picnic tables and benches) and improved signage.

• Join the Adopt-A-Park program to motivate yourself to get outside during the wet and chilly months and help contribute to the beauty of our community

In 2019, the final phase will focus on the installation of new playgrounds and renovation of Guilby, Lower Lougheed, Ranch and Oakdale parks.

• Lend a book to one of the little libraries located in several Coquitlam parks, including Galloway Park, Millard Orchard Park, Norm Staff Park, Town Centre Park, Mundy Park, Como Lake Park and Blue Mountain Park.

The Coquitlam in Bloom program fosters community pride through stewardship events and initiatives such as Park Spark, Adopt-a-Park, and the Bad Seed Program. The 2018 Coquitlam in Bloom initiatives shined a spotlight on community sport and all the people in the community—volunteers, players, coaches and club executives—who help make it happen. Coquitlam celebrated the sport theme with two sports fairs, coaching and volunteer workshops and a sports speaker series.

Mundy Park: Voted Best Place to Walk Your Dog in the Tri-Cities!

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification. This year, Communities in Bloom named Coquitlam as the winner of the Class of Champions in their 2018 civic pride and beautification competition.

DROP BY & BEE INSPIRED! Located at the corner of Pipeline Road and Guildford Way in Town Centre Park, this learning and teaching display garden is open year round. Drop by to see our amazing collection of trees, shrubs and perennials, all suitable for residential gardens. The garden is dedicated to growing, developing and supporting a community of gardeners of all ages. The garden offers educational programs and volunteer opportunities from April to October.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS From our Kids in the Garden series to hands-on workshops, we offer something for everyone. Visit coquitlam.ca/garden in the spring to see our early 2019 course offerings.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES We have volunteer opportunities for all abilities in the garden and are always looking for new people to join our team. It’s a space for gardening veterans to share and exchange knowledge, while new gardeners can learn in the positive, supportive environment. Volunteer tasks range from working in the garden to acting as garden hosts. Orientations are usually held at the beginning of the month, from April to September. Visit coquitlam.ca/garden for upcoming dates.

Spring Garden Tips ´´ Pull weeds before they flower and set seed ´´ Add a layer of mulch (wood chips, compost, mulched leaves) on your garden beds to suppress weeds and conserve water during the summer ´´ Prune back any branches damaged by winter weather ´´ Divide summer blooming perennials that require it— you can determine if they need dividing if they have an empty space in the middle or if you’ve noticed a decline in flowering ´´ Move any plants that need moving to ensure the roots are established before summer ´´ Plant early season vegetables like peas, spinach, swiss chard and cabbage ´´ Consider planting a variety of pollinator friendly plants (like borage, coneflowers, marigolds, yarrow), and leaving some debris in the garden to create habitat for pollinators such as bees, butterflies and beetles. ´´ Enjoy the beautiful spring bulb displays around Coquitlam!
