    ALL ABOARD The West Coast Railway Heritage Park! For train lovers, history buffs and children of all ages the Park is guaranteed to delight. Visit the largest collection of railway rolling stock in Western Canada as well as many other railway artifacts. Climb aboard cabooses, passenger cars, locomotives and the centre piece of the collection, an 1890 CPR Business Car.

    Take a 25 minute ride around the park on our 3km Miniature Railway, and view the Garden Railway display while on board. The Mini Rail route is turned into a beautiful light display tour at Christmas.

    A railway station was originally planned for Squamish in 1915 but it never materialized. Now, more than 85 years later, the original plans were used to build the station which is now the main entrance to the park.

    The West Coast Railway Park is a work in progress constantly expanding with fascinating additions sure to delight the new and return visitors. It is one of the most visited railway parks in Canada.

    Construction of our 21,000 sq/ft CN Roundhouse & Conference Centre is complete. This exciting new complex will includes an operating turntable, and an outdoor plaza.

    Yearly memberships are available and the park is open year round.

    HISTORICAL NOTE:

    Water was the only means of access to Squamish until 1954, when the Pacific Great Eastern Railway opened between Vancouver and Prince George. A year later, Highway 99 opened, ending the isolation of the town of Squamish, which has grown and prospered as a result.
