How to Get There:
Event Directions:Estimated Driving Time from Vancouver: 1 hour Minnekhada Regional Park is located in the Vancouver suburb of Coquitlam and is about an hour drive from downtown. To get to the park, drive eastbound on Highway #1 (Trans Canada Highway) to Exit #44 Lougheed Hwy East (if you drive over the Port Mann Bridge you have gone too far). Continue along Lougheed Hwy for about 10km until you reach a major intersection at the Coquilam Centre shopping mall. At the lights, turn right and continue along what is now Lougheed Hwy. After driving for 10 minutes, turn left at the lights onto Coast Meridian Road. Continue heading northbound along Coast Meridian for about 3km and turn right on Victoria Drive. Drive straight for about 2km and watch the street signs on your left for Victoria Drive. While on Victoria Drive turn left as it heads off to the left. Continue for about 2km until the road becomes gravel and turns into Quarry Road. A short distance along the gravel road on the right side, pull into the parking lot with the Minnekhada Regional Park sign. View a map of Driving directions to Minnekhada Regional Park.
