Green Roof… Walmart?

(T)he roof of Port Coquitlam’s new Walmart Supercentre was quiet and serene. To the east the view of the coastal mountains was spectacular and the lush foliage on the banks of the Pitt River created a wall of green. But it was the 220,000 hand-planted sedums and succulents that were taking root on Walmart’s roof that drew one’s attention.

The tiny, colourful, drought-tolerant plants that more-rightly belonged in rock crevices or an alpine meadow stretched out as far as the eye could see.

Sounds like Canada. Let’s look up this Port Coquitlam. And… it’s in British Columbia, so you know it’s gonna be pretty.

Well, the park’s new gym equipment is pretty.

And the trails are nice and neat and cleaned up too.

So if you visit Port Coquitlam in British Columbia, remember to visit the Park and the Trail and the Walmart roofscape.
