Meet Port Moody!
Port Moody is widely known as the City of the Arts. Located at the head of the Burrard inlet, Port Moody is located 40 minutes from the downtown core and just steps away from seaside park areas, trails, mountain ranges and pristene lakes. Port Moody or "PoMo" was incorporated as a city in 1913, but today the city has a population of 43,000 and is ever growing. The arts are celebrated and practiced in the city, making it accessible for all is residences and visitors. There are several museums, gallery's and public art spaces that are free to observe and ever changing.
PoMo is home to Rocky Point Park, which spans 3.8 hectares offering hiking trails, a new spary park, skate parks, biking trails, picnic and playgound areas, boat launches and a recreational pier. Directly across the inlet from Rocky Point Park, there's Old Orchard park which is less than half the size of Rocky Point, but offers a sandy beach as compensation. Port Moody is home to stunning alpine lakes, seafront parks and mountain ranges that will blow you away.
Moody Center is located across from Rocky Point Park, just north of St. Johns street. It is serviced by the Evergreen Line (Skytrain) and the West Coast Express train, giving commuters access to the remainder of the tricities. Commuters also have access to the other communities that the skytrain system services throughout the mainland. Residents of Port Moody can be downtown Vancouver in 40 minutes or less if choosing to travel on the Skytrain.
