Block Parties Reopened July 1

The City's Block Party Program reopened on July 1 as the Province entered phase 3 of the BC's Restart plan. Please note that the $200 block party grant will not be available for the remainder of 2021.

Are you looking to have some fun this summer? Block parties are a great way to get to know your neighbours, build a sense of community, and celebrate being a Port Moody resident. Host a party in the street, in the common space of a townhouse complex, in front of your apartment building or in a nearby park.
