Hockaday is a quiet residential neighbourhood that consists of detached homes. A large number of the homes have large lots, and the majority of them are on flat grounds. As this area is nestled near the Coquitlam River, homes are often backing on to the greenbelt or surrounded by forest, which adds to the privacy and quiet of the area. It’s nearby a number of great schools, and is also close to the local Douglas College.
For the outdoorsy, you’re within walking distance to Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park, which has a small man-made lake, walking trails, tennis courts, basketball courts, a playground, football/soccer fields, and a track.As Hockaday borders Coquitlam River, you’ll often see kids tubing down the river, or people fishing, swimming, or hanging out and cooling off.
