Lights at Lafarge

Skip the crowds and come early or late on weekdays for the best viewing experience.

Lights at Lafarge, presented by Coquitlam Centre and produced by the City of Coquitlam, returns to Town Centre Park this year with lights on until Jan. 31, 2022. Modified in consideration of current provincial health orders and public safety, this year’s Lights at Lafarge winter lights display is dispersed to provide two walking loops within Town Centre Park.

In order to minimize crowds and support public safety, those planning a visit should consider off-peak hours (before 6 p.m. and after 8 p.m.), and avoid weekends when it can be busier and more congested. 

On New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, the lights will remain on past midnight in celebration of the holiday, turning off for the night at 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1.  

The City’s Park Hosts are in the park throughout the holidays to remind visitors of walking direction and physical distancing.

Move, Walk, Volunteer and Contribute

Lace up your walking shoes (or slip on your rain boots) and embark on the 1.2 km lake loop. New this year is a second walking loop that takes walkers through the Inspiration Garden and by the new concession plaza in Town Centre Park.

Parking at Town Centre Park is free – but limited – consider walking or taking the SkyTrain to the Lafarge Lake-Douglas station. Please do not park in the Evergreen Cultural Centre parking lot. 

Get involved with Lights at Lafarge. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join the Light Brigade. The Park Spark team is leading workshops in November for individuals and community groups to create pop-bottle tulips, help install light displays and host a night during Lights at Lafarge.
