The neighbourhoods of Port Moody, their character and uniqueness, will be featured over the next few posts.
Situated on the Pacific North-West as Canada’s gateway to emerging markets and with a reputation as one of the most livable regions in the world, Port Moody, with a population of 30,000 (est. 2010) is one of the smallest cities in Metro Vancouver
Port Moody served as the original west coast terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railroad and was historically an industrial town.
Today we are fortunate to have an unrivalled quality of life in Port Moody that is, affordable, modern family-oriented, promotes sustainable and green practices, and caters to a vibrant and active outdoor lifestyle.
The City’s five major neighbourhoods are distinct in size, age, land uses, densities and stage of development:
1 COLLEGE PARK, HARBOUR HEIGHTS, GLENAYRE, AND SEAVIEW
2 MOODY CENTRE
3 CORONATION PARK
4 INLET CENTRE
5 THE NORTH SHORE NEIGHBOURHOODS:
- PLEASANTSIDE AND APRIL ROAD
- HERITAGE MOUNTAIN, TWIN CREEKS, NOONS CREEK, MOUNTAIN MEADOWS AND HERITAGE WOODS
- IOCO AREA
We’ll kick-off things with some information about Coronation Park where we can expect to see the existing land use and character retained, and this is because the neighbourhood is not at the point where pressure for redevelopment is likely to occur in the short to medium term.
The main benefits of living in the neighbourhood of Coronation Park are that you have walking access to so much, from the shopping, schools, hospital, theatre, library, park and recreation centre. It is also amongst the most affordable housing in the Tri-Cities, and Rapid Transit is on the way.
The Coronation Park neighbourhood is composed of a mix of townhouses (mainly) and single-family homes, and is the smallest of Port Moody’s neighbourhoods in terms of land area. The majority of single-family homes in Coronation Park date back to the 1950s. Most of the multi-family development in Coronation Park occurred in the 1970s.
