The Park Board understands the desire for an Easter Train event in Stanley Park, but unfortunately, this event has been paused this year due to ongoing repairs following a recent assessment. That being said, a recommissioning plan to put the train back on track for late spring or early summer has been proposed, and a comprehensive timeline for repairs and regular train operations will be shared with the public as soon as possible.
