Metrolink History: Buena Park Station Starts Service in September 2007
At 4:55 a.m. on Tuesday, September 4, 2007, Metrolink picked up its first passengers at the new Buena Park Metrolink Station.
The station, which had been in planned since as early as 1998, when the first renderings of the station were released. On December 14, 2005, the station held a groundbreaking ceremony with construction starting in January 2006.
While the official grand opening wasn’t until October 6, 2007, riders were already taking advantage of the first passenger rail service in Buena Park in more than 40 years.
The station, which serves the Orange County and 91/Perris Valley lines, features a unique 70 foot clock tower based off the nearby Independence Hall replica at Knott’s Berry Farm, and is prominently featured in the City’s logo.
Some of Buena Park’s best family entertainment options are just a short distance away with a free transfer on OCTA Bus Route 29, which stops directly at the station. Some of these great attractions include Medieval Times, Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, Knott’s Berry Farm and the delicious Porto’s Bakery.
