About Burke Mountain
Burke Mountain backs on Pinecone Burk Provincial Park overlooking the city of Port Coquitlam and has vast trail networks and greenspace. Since 2017 development has been ongoing, and planning has continued. Consistent consultation with the community allows for the focus of the needs of a well-connected community.
There are a few commercial spaces at the cross-section of David and Coast Meridian, with plans for other clusters of businesses that include grocery stores, coffee shops, and other amenities. Currently, a Shoppers Drug Mart, a sushi restaurant, a 7/11, and an insurance office can be found. Burke Mountain has a fire station and electric charging stations. There are various Montessori daycares and one public elementary - Smiling Creek Elementary. The main parks (aside from the provincial park) are Fremont Park, Galloway Park, and Harper Park.
There are several bus routes to this area via TransLink, and the Douglas SkyTrain Station is a rough 10 min drive away. However, the area is still developing, so bus service can sometimes be sparse. It is anticipated that as this community grows, so will public transit options.
