Anmore is located in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver neighbouring
the communities of Port Moody, Coquitlam
Anmore is a rural community located in the hills towards the north-west
side of Burrard Inlet that officially become a Village on December
7th, 1987. Anmore is made up of large estate-style homes usually
situated on acreages and has remained virtually untouched with only
the really commercially developed area in the community, is the
Village Hall located at 2697 Sunnyside Road, Anmore Camp & RV
Park and the Anmore Grocery.
Anmore has remained virtually untouched and appeals to people who
enjoy the lifestyle of an outdoor quiet lifestyle. Horseback riding,
walking your dog or exploring the stars at night is all available
To get to the Village of Anmore, take Ioco Road through Port Moody
to 1st Avenue then turn east on Sunnyside Road. Another route is
to take Ioco Road to Heritage Mountain Road, then turn right on
David Avenue to East Road. Travel on East Road to Sunnyside Road.
Lake Reservoir Park
For a great walk while visiting Anmore, try visiting Buntzen Lake
Reservoir Park where you can find an excellent perimeter trail and
some areas for swimming. The trail that is located on the north
side of Sunnyside Road past the Village Hall is where you can find
the entrance into the park.
This 1,100 hectares (2,718 acres) park borders Anmore, Belcarra
and Port Moody is accessible by taking Belcarra Regional Park that
has numerous walking trails available including the 2.5 km loop
Sasamat Lake Loop Trail that features the extremely popular White
Pine Beach on Sasamat Lake.
For other walking trails located nearby to Anmore, a real favourite
is the Admiralty Point Trail in the nearby Village of Belcarra.
The easy 5 km (3 mile) hike takes you to Admiralty Point through
a well-established second-growth forest past panoramic vistas eventually
to a picnic site and a small shoreline area called Maple Beach that
features Cod Rock, a large outcrop next to Burrard Inlet.
For ocean kayakers the area north of the Belcarra Regional Park
picnic site has some great areas to try especially around Whisky
Cove, Cosy Cove, Jug Island and Bedwell Bay. For Kayakers coming
out of Belcarra Park or Deep Cove in
the District of North Vancouver
and exploring Indian Arm this area can be crossed quite easily depending
on the weather. You can find rentals and weather information at
Belcarra Regional Park.
Just a note, if you do intend to visit Sasamat Lake in the summer
time, the area is very popular and the parking lot fills up quickly.
In addition, White Pine Beach can sometimes get a little crowded
especially with the local teenagers during the hot weather, so try
to arrive early for a spot on the beach, a parking spot or, if you
prefer, a little more privacy.
For people who love to fish, try angling on Buntzen Lake where there
are Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout, Kokanee plus some Dolly Varden.
Buntzen Lake tends to be a lot colder than the warmer Sasamat Lake.
