Minnekhada is a beautiful park that brings the beauty of the outdoors to just a short drive away from the urban communities of the lower mainland. From the top, there is a beautiful westerly view of the Fraser Valley. The trails are inviting and cover...More

I can hardly believe that such a beautiful wilderness is located so close to the city. Whether you want to bike,hike,walk or bird watch. This is the place. Just be bear aware and recently cougars have been sighted in the area.

Forest, marsh and rocky outcrops make this regional park a gem to explore any time of year. The network of quiet trails are great places to hike and watch for wildlife. It is also home to Minnekhada Lodge, a 1930s country estate with spectacular views...More

Lush beautiful environment. Felt like I was in the heart of a giant rain forest. Make sure you are prepared for all weather conditions. It was a bit rainy when we went and it made the trails a bit slippery. I would rate this as...More

Great hiking trails to the high or low knoll lookouts! Watch for the small toads on the trails in August and black bears in summer. It’s a great wilderness escape and you feel like you’re miles away from civilization.

This park has a wide variety scenic elements in a fairly small area: trails overlooking swamps, forests, high points with lookouts. Lots of birds. Good exerccise as there are lots of terrain changes.

Visited this park last Sunday. Perfect sunny fall weather, splendid fall landscapes and great reflections on the pond. Highly recommend bringing a map for the park. It's large! Must say that the signage is good within the trail system. Lots of sign posts to guide...More

The park is somehow at the border Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, approx. 10 km from Coquitlam Centre. So if you want a break from the city noise this is the perfect spot to recharge your batteries. You can go there to sit on a bench...More

Hi, Alex. There is only a small marshy area - with no fishing - within the park, but the east side of the park borders on Pitt River, which has good fishing. Don't forget your BC fishing license!
