Stanley Park Train full of happy families waving

Ride the Stanley Park Train

The Stanley Park Train is one of Vancouver's most popular attractions, welcoming over 200,000 visitors per year.

Travel over trestles and through tunnels on your two-kilometre winding journey through the Stanley Park forest.

Appreciate nature from a relaxing seat on a replica of Canadian Pacific Railway Engine #374, famous for pulling Canada's first transcontinental passenger train into Vancouver in the late 1880s.

The Stanley Park Train is open in spring and summer, and for Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.

The train was built in 1964 after Typhoon Frieda blew down a clearing of fallen trees in the Stanley Park forest.
