History of the train
In 1964 a clearing was created by fallen trees in the Stanley Park forest, following the havoc created by Typhoon Frieda. The Stanley Park Miniature Railway was built in the clearing.
The Stanley Park Miniature Train operates as a seasonal attraction, based on various themes throughout the year.
