The Stanley Park Miniature Train features heavily in family-traditions throughout the year. Whether it is scaring yourself silly on the annual Ghost Train, or jumping feet-first into the holiday spirit with the magical Bright Nights Train, almost everyone has taken a ride on the miniature train.
As the train winds through the forest, visitors hear fun facts about the resident wildlife and snippets of Stanley Park history. Learn the names of the common trees and the variety of creatures that make this park their home.
Younger passengers can earn a Junior Urban Forest Ranger button! Ask for the quiz at the Ticket Booth before you board the train. Listen closely, answer the questions and exchange your quiz for a button at the end of your ride!
The Urban Forest Train runs June 29 – September 2, 2019. If you happen to be visiting Stanley Park on a Sunday, and your favourite pooch is with you, guess what, your dog can ride the train too! Every Sunday beginning July 7, your furry friend can ride with you at no charge. All dogs must be on-leash. If your dog has a high prey drive or is fearful of loud noises or water, this is not a suitable activity. Train staff have the right to refuse to onboard an animal.
