Iron Horse Park has many freely available picnic tables for use by single families (8 people or less) who wish to bring and enjoy a quick picnic (usually 1 hour or less).

However we have now establised a couple of areas where at least 3 picnic tables with umbrellas will be available for larger groups (up to 20 people).

The cost for these areas is $75.00. Parties are limited to 20 guests. More cannot be accommodated because of the physical constraints of these spot. Our online booking facility is NOT available for these locations. They are 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. Please check in with the counter staff in the main station
  • 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
  • These locations are 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
