Port Moody

Port Moody Real Estate:

The North Shore of Port Moody real estate area or region refers to the stretch of land that wraps around the tip of the Burrard Inlet. Much of this area has houses for sale that are beachfront or oceanfront properties with views, and it is expected that much of the future real estate development in Port Moody will take place here. The area offers many housing options for sale including large properties, executive houses and estates, townhouses, and condominiums.

Along with Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, Port Moody completes the area known as the “Tri-Cities”, which together occupy the region at the foot of Eagle Mountain, between the head of the Burrard Inlet and the Fraser River, in the Fraser Valley. A mere 30 - 40 minute drive to downtown Vancouver, or a 25 minute ride on the West Coast Express commuter train, Port Moody real estate is considered a premiere location to enjoy a relaxed, suburban lifestyle, with direct and easy access to a major urban centre.

Historically rich, Port Moody – or PoMo, as some call it - occupies an important place in the history of western Canada. Originally inhabited by the the Squamish and Musqueam bands of the Coast Salish people, Port Moody was renamed after Colonel Richard Moody in 1859, during the gold rush on the Fraser River. In 1879, Port Moody was officially dubbed the western terminus for the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway), and the ramshackle town that had sprung up began to grow into a bona fide community.

The geography of Port Moody is second-to-none: lush mountainside forests promise spectacular hiking, cycling, and walking excursions, while the waterfront on the Burrard Inlet and around the numerous nearby lakes is sure to please boaters, swimmers, picnickers and water-skiers. The local Noon’s Creek Hatchery, the Port Moody Arts Centre, and the Port Moody Station Museum are just a few of the many local attractions. Residents can book and rent local playing fields – both natural and artificial grass – for their sporting events, and for less structured days of outdoor play, one of Port Moody’s many parks will suit. Annual and semi-annual festivals such as the Festival of the Arts, Golden Spike Days, and the Port Moody Canadian Film Festival, ensure a fun and easy way for residents to meet.

In 2001, the Port Moody government, in conjunction with local arts organizations, local businesses, and the community at large, formally adopted the “Cultural Strategic Plan” which states that its mission is “…to enrich community life by encouraging & supporting the development of arts, culture & tourism; inspiring a vibrant future, while respecting the past." Due to this initiative, and because Port Moody has an existing reputation as a hotbed of artistic expression, Port Moody is now known at “The City of the Arts.”

PoMo residents can enjoy all the amenities of a larger city, including police and fire departments, garbage and recycling services, and snow removal. Port Moody is also serviced for electricity, telephone, hydro, and cable. Simon Fraser University is a short drive away, as is the shopping district of the all-new Newport Village, and the 910,000 foot Coquitlam Centre. Just as in any larger city, Port Moody provides residents with all the comforts of modern living, in a spectacular natural setting.Port Moody is now a thriving community of approximately 25,000 residents, and one that encompasses several distinct neighbourhoods. Belcarra, Anmore/Sunnyside, Barber Street, College Park, Heritage Mountain, HeritageWoods, Mountain Meadows, Newport Village, and the North Shore of Port Moody.
