The SPARC museum is located on the Riverview Hospital grounds in Coquitlam, B.C., Canada, about 15 miles east of Vancouver.
The museum is open to the public on Sundays roughly from 10AM to 4PM.
The Riverview Hospital grounds are a sprawling site with many buildings. It can be a little difficult to find the building containing SPARC. There are two main entry points to Riverview off the Lougheed Hwy (#7) between the Cape Horn interchange and Coquitlam Centre: one at Colony Farm Rd. and one at Orchid Drive. SPARC is located in a light-yellow-beige metal-clad, flat-roof building roughly in the north-south centre of the grounds, up the hillside from the red-brick East Lawn building and south of the white-and-blue North Lawn building.
Parking is plentiful and free.
If you are visiting SPARC on a nice day you may wish to allot some extra time to walk about the Riverview site with it's arboretum of trees and old architecture, and/or visit Finnie's garden. Another possibility is to coordinate your visit with one of the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society's Treefest tours.
