Do you love trains or have kids that do, this fun train ride is a must! The miniature trains representing the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), take you for a 1.6 km ride over trestles, through cool tunnels over hills, and around the park. Therefore, you get a feel for the railway during the pioneer days in Western Canada. The train ride is approximately 15 minutes long and such a good time you'll want to ride again.
The Iron Horse Park and Train Ride is a great place for Kid's Birthdays too. Can you imagine the delight of being a child and having your birthday party where you and your friends can ride a miniature train!
There is also a Food Truck on-site with mouthwatering Mini-Donuts. I bet you can't resist the wonderful aroma and will take home a dozen or two.
