As the largest park in Coquitlam, Mundy Park protects a beautiful second-growth temperate rainforest and several small lakes. Try spotting some wildlife, ride your bike, bring a picnic, try disc golf, or just wander the tree-lined trails.


How to Get to Mundy Park

Mundy Park has several entrances and parking areas. The main entrance is on Hillcrest Street, but there is also a smaller parking area on Mariner Way.

By Car: From Highway 1 or Lougheed Highway, go east on Brunette Ave. Turn left on Laurentian Crescent, then turn right on Austin Avenue. Turn left on Hillcrest Street, which leads to three parking areas. Or continue along Austin and then turn left on Mariner Way. From there, urn left into the parking lot opposite Chilko Drive.

By Public Transit: Take bus 156 from Braid Skytrain Station or Burquitlam Station to the stop on Hillcrest Street, which is just outside the park. You can also take bus 152 from Lougheed Station to Mariner Way on the east side of the park.


Tips for Visiting

  • Visit the park website and use the park map to plan your trip.
  • Dogs must be on-leash in most of the park and there are a few areas where dogs aren’t allowed. Check the park map to see where you can bring your dog.
  • Smoking and vaping are not allowed.
  • There are washrooms near the sports fields at the Hillcrest Street entrance and at the Mariner Way parking lot.
  • Be safe in the park. AdventureSmart recommends bringing a backpack with essential safety and first aid gear on every hike. Check the forecast and pack extra clothing for the weather. Leave a trip plan so someone knows where you are going and when you will be back.

Bring a Picnic

There is a large covered picnic shelter along with lots of individual picnic tables sprinkled in between trees on the west side of the park near the playground. Benches along the forested trails are also great places for a snack break.


Hit the Jumps at the Bike Skills Park

If you’re looking to improve your mountain bike technique, head to the east side of the park just north of the Mariner Way parking lot. Two short loop trails are designed to assist beginner and intermediate riders with obstacles, drops, and jumps.

Try Disc Golf

Also known as frisbee golf, disc golf is similar to regular golf, but the targets are a standing basket, not a hole. Mundy Park has a 9-hole disc golf course on the west side near the outdoor pool. The small course is perfect for beginners who aren’t used to long drives yet.

Go For a Run

Mundy Park’s quiet forested trails make it a great running destination. Follow the Perimeter trail to make a 4 km loop, passing tiny Lost Lake. Add on a bit more distance by running some of the interior trails.


Let Your Dog Explore Off-Leash

Mundy Park has lots of off-leash options for dogs. There is a fenced off-leash area near Mariner Way with dedicated sections for large and small dogs. The trails just to the west of there are off-leash as well. You can also have your dog off-leash on most trails in the park from dawn until 10 a.m. most days. (There are a few dog-free zones, so read park signs carefully.)

Bike the Paved Community Path

A paved path circles the park, perfect for an easy bike ride. The entire loop is 5.5 km long. Most of the path runs through the park, separated from traffic. But a short section in the south runs along quiet St. Albert Street.
