Stanley Park Easter Train: Notification of Closure for Saturday, March 30, 2024

March 30 2024 –

The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation regrets to announce that the Stanley Park Easter Train will not operate on Saturday, March 30, following a minor incident on Friday evening causing damage to a section of track.

The incident occurred during routine closedown procedures, when the train was being transported for overnight storage. No guests were on site and no staff were injured. Saturday ticket holders will be automatically refunded through the ShowPass account used to purchase the ticket. Sunday and Monday ticket holders will also have the option to refund their tickets through ShowPass.

Preliminary assessments suggest that the damage is minor. With the safety of staff and guests as our top priority, the train will be closed on Saturday to allow maintenance by contractors and a thorough safety inspection by Technical Safety BC.

We are fully committed to getting the train back up and running as quickly as possible. For the latest updates as to whether the train will operate on Sunday and Monday, please follow the Park Board’s social media channels: X (Twitter) , Instagram , Facebook .

We understand the excitement and anticipation that comes with a visit to the Stanley Park Easter Train and apologize for the disappointment this news may cause.
