New location, new park, this time we checked out Park Mackin in Mallardville, for the first time. Situated in Lower Coquitlam and next to Place des Arts, this little park offers a range of amenities, including a water play area, children’s playground, tennis courts, youth skate/social area, field house, two grass play fields, four ball diamonds, and the City’s only cricket pitch and cage.
The children’ playground has swings, slides, climbing structures, that appeal to different age groups. You can play or walk around, there is definitely something to do. Situated in the heart of a French area in Coquitlam, this is where you can go to the Festival du Bois, which happens every year, this year being 28th Edition. I am not sure if the location is the same every year, the last 3 years this was the one.
Also, while in the area, you can check Place des Arts and Mackin House. Place des Arts offers lots of activities, for all age groups, while Mackin House is actually a museum, part of the Coquitlam Heritage, both interesting and worth checking.
This last weekend it was actually a celebration of the francophone community, 105 years more precisely- FÊTE DE MAILLARDVILLE. Unfortunately, I missed it but for sure I will give it a try next time. It made me remember the time when we used to live in Montreal, Quebec. Allow some nostalgia from time to time, right?
