Visit the Park

(Photo: Jane Thomsing)

Over 9 km of trails for both walkers and cyclists showcase great views of the river, fields and mountains. You’ll find picnic tables and washrooms near the community gardens.

Open fields, hedgerows and wetlands provide habitat for more than 200 bird species as well as other animal species in this regional park.  The Coquitlam River runs through the park and drains into the Fraser River.

Do your part to protect the park!  To prevent disturbance of sensitive habitats and disruption of wildlife (especially ground-nesting birds)

  • Please stay on the trails
  • Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times
  • Do not remove vegetation or mushrooms


Public washrooms and picnic tables are located at the main parking lot at the end of Colony Farm Road.

Parking & trailheads

West side

Mundy parking lot: There is a small parking area immediately over the railway tracks on Colony Farm Road (off from the Lougheed Highway). This provides access to Mundy Creek Trail. 

If the Mundy Lot is full, additional parking can be found on the Riverview lands. Cross Lougheed at the lights and turn right on Cape Horn Avenue (head north past the bus stop to gravel pull off).

Main parking lot: The main parking lot is 1.2 km down Colony Farm Road. There are washroom facilities, picnic tables, an information kiosk with maps, and an organic community garden, open to the public.

East side

Shaughnessy trailhead:

There is a trailhead (with an information kiosk) leading into the park with a small parking area on Shaughnessy Street. From here the Pumphouse Trail leads to the pond and wetland area.

North side

Pitt River Road entrance: There is also a northern park entrance accessed from the Pitt River Road near the Red Bridge. There is a parking area on the north side of Pitt River Road. This is not part of the park, but from here you can cross the bridge and walk or cycle south into the park.
