Port Moody youth can talk trails, win a six-month rec pass

Port Moody youth can help shape the future of the city's parks and trails at a drop-in session on Friday, May 31.
Port Moody youth aged 11 to 18 are invited to provide input on local trails and public green spaces for possible civic improvement.

Zip lines at parks?

Public art along trails?

Food trucks on nearby streets?

Those are some ideas as Port Moody shapes the future of its public green spaces.

And, on Friday, May 31, the city is inviting Port Moody youth and teens to share their thoughts as the municipality figures out how to make its parks and trails more dynamic.

From 5:30 to 8 p.m., the city will host the exclusive meeting at the Port Moody Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Rd.) to gauge younger residents’ views on possible improvements to parks and trails.

No registration is required. The event in the Wellness Room is open for ages 11 to 18.

Prizes will be available for participants — including a chance to win a six-month Port Moody Teen Recreation Pass — as well as free pizza, snacks and beverages.

The open house comes as the city updates three policies:

  • Rocky Point and Old Orchard parks master plans
  • Trail Network Plan
  • Parkland Strategy

Meanwhile, Port Moody adults residents have until May 20 to fill out an online survey on the Rocky Point Park and Old Orchard parks master plans.
