Riverview is a 244-acre site located in southeast Coquitlam, close to the Cape Horn interchange, downtown Coquitlam and the Coquitlam Centre Station of the Evergreen Line. The lands are bordered by Riverview Crescent and Chilko Drive to the west and Lougheed Highway to the east. Natural areas, ravines and watercourses provide a connection to Colony Farm to the east and Riverview Forest to the west.
The Riverview Lands were acquired by the Province of B.C. in 1904 and for about 100 years Riverview was the centre for the treatment of mental health needs and addiction in the region. Riverview is currently home to several health facilities, including three mental health lodges, several cottages for residential patient care, as well as on-site businesses. Riverview is one of the top filming locations in B.C.
We continue to welcome visitors to Riverview, however we do ask that you review the rules and regulations of the site first. They are there for your protection as well as the residents and workers at Riverview.
