A “City of the Arts,” Port Moody is becoming as well-known for its vibrant cultural scene as it is for its spectacular natural setting. Located at the base of Eagle Mountain and at the eastern head of Burrard Inlet, this community of around 34,000 residents is quickly developing into one of Metro Vancouver’s most sought-after places to live.
Port Moody is the smallest of the three cities that comprise the Tri-Cities region – the other two are neighbouring Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam – and life here moves at a more relaxed pace. Its protected natural harbour has long appealed to boating enthusiasts and a coastline that extends for more than 27 km means that there are waterfront views aplenty here.
Incorporated in 1913, Port Moody originally gained fame as the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway and is now a thriving community with a solid industrial base. Its residential population is also growing and the city has three shopping districts – Moody Centre, Newport Village and Suter Brook Village.
