There is a miniature train ride in Stanley Park that operates at various times during the year (family day, easter, spring, summer, halloween, and christmas).  The Stanley Park miniature train ride operates out of an area called Stanley Park Junction that has a train station, ticket booth, and other facilities.  The miniature train goes on a scenic 15 minute, 2 kilometre ride which includes a tunnel and trestle over water.  The train accomodates both children and adults.  Additionally, there is a special train car to carry people who are in wheelchairs so everyone can enjoy the train ride!

For each season, there are season-specific decorations along the way, e.g. an easter theme during March, Christmas theme in December, scary displays during halloween.

This is a paid attraction.  You need to buy tickets to ride the train.  There are usually other free activities that take place at Stanley Park Junction that you can also do before/after your train ride.

There are 4 actual miniature trains which operate.  One of which is a replica of the engine that was the first to cross Canada!  The real (full size) engine resides in the Roundhouse in Yaletown, Vancouver!

There are washrooms a short distance just outside of the Stanley Park Junction exit near the ticket booth.
