Angela and I love to go for walks at Como Lake Park, in nearby Coquitlam.  When I was growing up, we were told that the lake was man-made.  That isn’t correct.  The lake is really the headwater of the Como Creek watershed, serving as an ecologically sensitive habitat for a variety of birds and other species.

The Park is now over 100 years old.  In the early 20th century, many residents loved to skate on the lake whenever an extended freezing spell thickened the ice.  On hot summer days, the lake offered a place to cool off.  Children hiked or cycled from their farms and homesteads, to go for a swim.

By the 1960’s, Como Lake had become a vibrant park, featuring a playground, water taps, picnic tables and lake trout.  Today, the lake features a one kilometer lakeside loop trail, for walking, hiking or jogging.  Benches, picnic tables and a playground add to the enjoyment.

I can’t think of a nicer place, to go for a relaxing walk.  We can watch people fishing for trout; and enjoy the geese and ducks.  It really is a nice place.

Beautiful Lake, and images, Mark.  Thanks for sharing.

 

Pray your Parks department never hires anyone from City of Toronto Parks to manage it! ;)

Wow, very nice place. I would be there a lot. Nice work!

Thanks, Dennis.

Many thanks for the kind words, everyone. 

 

Dennis, we try to go there at least twice per week.  Ron is right when he says it's a tranquil setting.  :)
