Details:

With the reports of the temperatures on the rise and special air quality advisories daily, The Exploration Place will again voluntarily shut down the 105 year old Little Prince Steam Engine. This is out of the abundance of caution relating to tinder dry conditions and a wood-fired steam boiler. The closure dates will be in effect from August 8th to August 16th. Hopefully with the chance of rain in the forecast we can reopen on August 17th! Stay tuned!

In the meantime Fort George Railway Station scoop shop will be open so you can come on down to enjoy locally made Frozen Paddle ice cream from Thursday to Monday, 12pm-8pm.

Please note that if you are unsure about the status of the train due to weather, please call us before coming down to the park: 250-562-1612.
