Get ready for a new way to hunt down your Easter eggs this year.

Stanley Park is bringing back its popular Easter Train for another run.  From March 23-April 1, bring the kids to the park for a ride on the miniature train, visits from the Easter Bunny and Easter Chick and, of course, plenty of egg hunts.

The Easter Train, which winds its way at a gentle pace through forests and past lakes in the 1,000-acre park, joins Stanley Park’s lineup of other popular seasonal trains, including the Bright Nights Christmas Train, the spooky, Halloween-themed Ghost Train and the Spirit Catcher Train at Klahowya First Nations Village.

The Easter Train runs rain or shine and is fully covered to protect you from those occasional spring showers.  Before hopping on board, take the kids to the craft tables for Easter-themed art projects.  Easter egg hunts are staged throughout the day near the start of the miniature rail line.  Just be sure to bring your own basket.  Here’s some history on the train.
