Zoo & Garden revisited | BC Highland Games | Stewart Farm

Multiple visits to the Queen's Park rose garden and petting zoo in New West are a given every summer and every time I go I'm fortunate enough to see things I missed the first or second time I dropped by.

BC Highland Games
Slainte Mhath! Coquitlam's Percy Perry Stadium hosts the annual BC Highland Games. Where "gingers" rule and the haunting drone of the pipes moves the heart. World champion Simon Fraser University Pipe Band attend. Highland dancers 'fling' their hearts out and the majority of the merchants carry 'clan-centric' goodies to tempt even the tightest of purses. See you there next year!

Stewart Farm
Built in 1894 by John Stewart, this beautifully restored Victorian-style farm house features a wrap around verandah. There is a vegetable garden, fruit trees, machine sheds and much more to explore.
