National Day for Truth and Reconciliation - Thursday, September 30, 2021

Please note that the park will NOT be open on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation holiday, Thursday, September 30, 2021


Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we are running reduced services in order to maintain social distancing. Face masks are currently not required and may be worn at your own discretion.

Our concession will also be open; however at this time we will only be selling pre-packaged snack foods, such as ice cream, as well as ride tokens, and souvenirs(at a great price). Unfortunately, at this time we are still unable to accept birthday party bookings.

The Garden Railway Committee has been working hard during the off season and we are optimistic our Garden Railway may be able to open for public viewing later this season.

Each train, once passengers have detrained, will be sanitized before the next group of passengers are boarded. Please be patient with us if it takes longer than normal for you to get a ride!

The Burnaby Central Railway is owned and operated by the BC Society of Model Engineers. Our volunteers donate their time to build, maintain, and operate it.

Funds collected from rides and donations are returned to our railway. Any donations from you would be greatly appreciated and amounts over $20.00 will receive a tax deductible receipt.

Thank you for your consideration.
