5. Plan Your Visit (from Evergreen Cultural Centre’s Website)
For complete information, please visit Evergreen Cultural Centre’s webpage at https://evergreenculturalcentre.ca/about/find-us/.
By Skytrain or Bus
They don’t call it the “end of the Evergreen Line” for nothing – the end of the Evergreen skytrain was built on our parking lot! Our theatre and art gallery are just 150 steps from the Lafarge Lake-Douglas Skytrain Station. Seriously. Alongside a complex network of local bus services, all roads lead to the Evergreen. Plan your travel route by visiting TRANSLINK‘s website.
While we have two parking lots at Evergreen, there is only one entrance – you can access our parking lots by travelling north on Pinetree Way, and entering on the right after the intersection at Guildford Way.
Our parking lots are owned and operated by the City of Coquitlam. Parking is free on Sundays and statutory holidays. Parking is also free in the designated 30-minute parking spaces.
There is a new City parking lot located at the south-east corner of Pinetree and Guildford – across the street from our electronic sign. Paid parking is in effect, but parking is free after 6pm, on Sundays, and statutory holidays.
PAY FOR PARKING | ParkIn APP
Want to pay for your parking from the comfort of our theatre lobby, rather than wait in line for the machines? The City has partnered with ParkIn to bring mobile options to their paid parking lots. Download the ParkIn app or scan the QR codes located in the parking lot and pay for parking while we pour you a drink at concession.
