Bettie Allard YMCA

Coquitlam Resident Access Rates and Hours

The City of Coquitlam has partnered with the Bettie Allard YMCA to provide Coquitlam residents access to fitness and aquatic facilities at the City’s drop-in rates. That means that if you are a Coquitlam resident, you do not have to be a YMCA member to access this facility. To learn more about the Coquitlam Resident Access times and rates, visit the Bettie Allard YMCA site.
