Park Spark provides an opportunity to have fun and gain meaningful experiences while enhancing Coquitlam’s parks. We offer a variety of opportunities for people to lend their expertise or experiences to connect with our parks.
The Park Spark Light Brigade creates opportunities for individuals, organizations and businesses to participate in Lights at Lafarge through:
Creating new pop bottle tulips
Installing special displays
Taking part in light-making workshops
Leading caroling nights throughout the season or at Jingle Bells Night.
