Port Moody is located on the waters known as Burrard Inlet in the Metro Vancouver area of Vancouver, Coast & Mountains. The tidal waters provide opportunities to see wildlife including sea lions, seals, ducks, herons and many other birds. The area around this Inlet is called Rocky Point Park. A walking and biking trail surround the waters dipping through forests, crossing the water on a narrow boardwalk, offering a place to spot spawning salmon at the right time of year, and stopping at a sandy swimming beach.
Port Moody is a growing community but one that has kept its charm. Newport Village, has a collection of boutiques and unique shops as well as eateries, delicious ice cream and more. The old town has kept much of its historical feel with shops and dining adventures plus there are several small craft breweries close by. And there are art galleries and studios located throughout the community.
Port Moody, offers local residents picture-perfect conditions for a plethora of water sports on Burrard Inlet, including swimming, boating and cold-water scuba diving. Belcarra Regional Park and, just beyond city limits, Buntzen Lake are popular summer destinations. Cultural pursuits abound too, earning Port Moody the moniker City of the Arts. Commercial activities centre around the condo towers of Newport Village, but craft breweries are leading a renaissance in the city’s industrial downtown. Single-family housing is available in the College Park, Glenayre and Harbour Heights neighbourhoods outside the core.
