All About Port Coquitlam

With Coquitlam bordering it to the West, and Pitt Meadows directly across the Pitt River, Port Coquitlam is almost entirely intersected by Lougheed Highway. Originally comprised of mostly farmland, Port Coquitlam’s economy now consists of a mix of suburban housing and a variety of industrial and commercial areas.
Port Coquitlam has experienced significant growth over the years, yet it still maintains its small town charm with its historic downtown core.
