Ride the Stanley Park Train

COVID-19 update: Bright Nights opening night temporarily suspended

November 23, 2020: We're temporarily suspending the opening of Bright Nights until December 8 as a result of the new Provincial health orders. 

Ticket holders for November 26 to December 7 will have their tickets automatically refunded by TicketLeader. Refunds take 10 to 14 days to appear in credit card statements.

We are open in spring and summer, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas!

Welcoming over 200,000 visitors annually, the Stanley Park Railway is popular with locals and tourists alike. The 20 gauge, 2 km track winds through the forest over ground cleared by Typhoon Freda, the most devastating storm in Vancouver history which blew through in 1962.  

Passengers can get a close-up look at a vintage engine and a quick photo before boarding for the 15-minute ride. 

The jewel of the Stanley Park Railway’s collection of old locomotives is a locally-built replica of Canadian Pacific Railway Engine #374, famous for pulling Canada's first transcontinental passenger train into Vancouver in the late 1880s.  

Stanley Park Railway is adjacent to other popular destinations such as Lumberman’s Arch, Malkin Bowl, and the Rose Garden.
