Family Fun Day 2020 - Historic Places Days

Family Fun Day 2020

Fun & Games
22 August, 2020 | 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

Join us for a day of train-tastic fun social distance style!


Walk among the giants of industry and stroll through our beautiful urban orchard and railway gardens.

Do our rock-tastic scavenger hunt and enjoy self-led games and activities throughout the park.

Bring your own picnic and enjoy while listening to the tunes of Ukuleles (entertainment schedule TBA).

Watch a movie in our Island Cache Theater while munching on fresh popcorn and lemonade (which we offer by donation).

Peek into the Blacksmith Shop and watch the Blacksmith in his forge.

Our Gallery is host to the exhibit “Beehive Burners Behind Us”, a collection of oil paintings by Lou Englehart that depict beehive burners from across BC. There will be a limit to the number of guests in the Gallery, as well as directional signage to assist in movement through this exhibit, and to ensure appropriate physical spacing.

There are several precautions we are taking for the health and safety of visitors. These include, increased cleaning regime, the addition of hand sanitation stations, safety shields at the reception area, additional signage, a revised disposable guide booklet, limited number of people inside the visitor center, Gift Shop and industrial park.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to operate the Cottonwood Minitrain for the public until regulations to social and physical distancing are lifted.
