Anmore is located in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver neighbouring the communities of Port Moody, Coquitlam and Belcarra.

Rural Community
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.

Outdoor Lifestyle
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 here.

Ioco Road
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.

Buntzen 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.

Belcarra Regional 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.

Admiralty Point Trail
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.

Ocean Kayaking
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.

Very Popular
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.

Newport Village
For shopping, entertainment and services, the closest thing to Anmore is at Newport Village in Port Moody just off Ioco Road. Here you can find a grocery store, condos, Port Moody Community Centre, Eagle Ridge Hospital, the arena, pharmacist, health-related clinics, restaurants and a local favourite, the St. James' Well Irish Pub.
