Blue Mountain is among the City’s original parks and continues to be a vibrant community space.

The City of Coquitlam pickleball trial ended on October 18, and semi-permanent nets have been removed. Players are still welcome to set up their own nets and make use of Blue Mountain courts for pickleball games.

History

To celebrate spring in the 1940s and 50s, the local community organized a May Day event each year with races, a May pole, and a parade that made its way from Municipal Hall on Brunette Avenue to Blue Mountain Park. An early resident recalled the cars chugging up the unpaved Blue Mountain Road, and often boiling over, before they reached the celebration. 

In the 1930s the local volunteer ‘booster club’ built a small wading pool at Blue Mountain. But it was not until 1958 that Coquitlam’s first public recreation facility, an outdoor pool was constructed in the park. With the opening of the pool, the District sponsored a program to ensure all grade 6 students would have swim lessons.
