Iron Horse Park

Birthday Party, a Picnic or Other Event at Iron Horse Park.
Grassy Knoll (Outdoor facility only).


Cozy outdoor area close to the inbound mainline track.

Grassy Knoll is an overflow area which, by chance, has evolved to be a very popular spot. It is very close to the station and the pathway leading to our Train Mountain playground.

The cost for 2017 is $75.00. Parties are limited to 20 guests. More cannot be accommodated because of the physical constraints of this spot. Our online booking facility is not available for this location. It is strictly available for "walk-ins" on a first come, first served basis. Two time slots are available for events: the first is 11:00 AM to 1:00PM and the other is 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. For $75 (and please check the fine print at the bottom of this page), the following is included:
  • Semi-private area with the use of three picnic tables with umbrellas
  • 20 interpretive journeys for your guests. Tickets do not have an expiry date and can be used on other run days
  • Additional tickets available at our standard prices or;
  • A special one-time Party deal of "20 journeys for $20" which may be purchased only on the day of your event
  • There are no Reserved Parking Stalls
  • No deposit required. The $75 fee for use is to be paid on the day of the event
  • Events are scheduled for a 2 hour time slot with an additional 30 minutes grace before and after for you to set up and subsequently vacate the premises. Please aim to show up 30 minutes before our 11AM or 2PM party time slots in order to take full advantage of the time slot
  • This location is WEATHER and "FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED" DEPENDENT. We strongly suggest that you have alternate plans in place in case of weather or unavailability (see the "Fine Print" at the bottom of this page)
  • Please Note: Washrooms are located on the South side of the main station facing the parking lot



This site is conveniently located very close to the station where one
can observe lots of moving trains and activity on the station platform and tracks.
