Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute to Phase 1, which is now closed. Your input will inform the development of Port Moody's trail network plan. The Phase 1 public engagement summary (see item 7.6 in the Council meeting agenda package) was shared with Council on January 9, 2024. Phase 2 engagement is anticipated to begin in spring 2024.


Help us develop a trail network plan that will guide us as we manage trails and prioritize enhancements over the next 30 years.

We want to know:

  • How do you use Port Moody’s trail network?
  • What do you like about it and what can be improved?

Port Moody's trail network

Port Moody is home to an estimated 18.5 kilometres of trails managed by the City of Port Moody and the Tri-Cities Off Road Cycling Association (TORCA). Metro Vancouver also manages approximately five kilometres of trails in təmtəmíxʷtən/Belcarra Regional Park that are outside of the scope of this project.

The maintenance and enhancement of the City’s network of trails is a high priority for Port Moody residents. Our trails are a part of the city’s active transportation network, connecting different parts of the community. And they provide access to the City’s diverse forests and shorelines for a variety of purposes, including recreation and exercise, social connection, and the enjoyment of nature.

Why a Trail Network Plan?

In recent decades, Port Moody has experienced considerable growth in demand for use of trails and changes in the types of uses and trail visits. To meet this increasing demand, the City is reviewing the current trail network and looking at how to improve user experience.

The Trail Network Plan will define a vision for the City’s extensive trail network, and provide clear and coordinated direction for planning and managing our trails and trail-related amenities over the next 30 years.

Engagement on the Trail Network Plan

Work on the Trail Network Plan began in the spring of 2023 and is expected to be completed in 2024. Community engagement will take place in two phases. In the fall of 2023, we’ll focus on informing the public about the project and seeking input on public aspirations and concerns for the trail network. In early 2024, we’ll ask participants to provide feedback on the draft Plan and assess implementation priorities.

Past engagement opportunities:

Phase 1: In September/October 2023, we asked for your thoughts on the current network of trails in Port Moody and how it could be improved:

  • we received comments on our interactive map to provide location-specific feedback or recommendations; and
  • we hosted two trailhead pop-up events in September at Bert Flinn Park and the along the Shoreline Trail; and
  • collected input via a community survey open from August 30 to October 4, 2023.

New engagement opportunities coming in 2024:

Phase 2 public engagement is anticipated to begin in spring 2024. We'll post details to this page when they become available.
