  • By far one of the BEST attractions in Vancouver (Burnaby). So much to do, learn, and explore in this lovely village. It was like stepping back in time! Well-maintained, friendly service, and beautiful buildings. Come by on Christmas, Canada Day, and Halloween for an extra special treat. Best part it's FREE. Carousel ride was $2 something and well worth it.
  • Nice replica of a 1920's village. Some buildings are original. The village is well maintained. There is a nice variety of stores and buildings. Thanks to all who have made this experience in history free.
  • Wow! Was definitely not expecting all this! And at no cost?! Definitely a must see, beutifuly preserved history. The staff was friendly and extremely knowledgeable
  • Usually free to enter, this is a great way to see how things used to be. From the Model T, to the Trolley, even has a fully functional blacksmith shop. The real highlight is the carousel. (Costs to ride) This thing is fast! Seasonal decorations and events often happen here. I even got to turn butter one summer.
  • My daughter is obsessed with the carousel ride here and she's not alone. Kids just love it. We will probably have to buy the annual membership this year. The wooden horses are beautifully restored and carefully documented. Kids can learn about their favorite ride before even getting on it. The admission to the village is free but it's better than a lot of paid places. Lots to see and explore. Highly recommend it.
