Port Coquitlam's Civic Centre Revitalization

Thank you for sharing your feedback on the draft concept for the transformation of the Civic Centre in downtown Port Coquitlam – including Veterans Park, Leigh Square and an extension of Donald Pathway – into an accessible, safe and inviting place.

Following the public feedback, the city will launch a detailed planning process this year that will set the stage for construction to begin in 2022.


Based on public and stakeholder feedback and public space best practices, the draft concept intends to: Civic Centre Map

  • Attract families and people of all ages to the downtown and give them a reason to stay, whether it be through improved event space, performances, public art or park space,
  • Improve safety, visual sightlines and connectivity, and
  • Create an atmosphere that is fun, lively and green, with lighting for night-time enjoyment.

The draft downtown design concept is available at portcoquitlam.ca/downtown which reflects a variety of planning exercises over the years, including:

  • the 2016 Cultural Plan,
  • 2017 Recommendations for a Downtown Action Plan and
  • 2018 Downtown Concept Plan.

Public consultation in the past has included public surveys, workshops, a Downtown Action Plan Advisory Group and the City’s annual budget survey. Targeted engagement of stakeholders – including area property owners, residents, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 133, arts groups and the PoCo BIA – has also taken place and will continue throughout the process.
