Holiday Model Train Show

Take a journey around the holiday model train garden!

G-scale choo choo trains and a holiday trolley chug along six tracks. They emerge from tunnels, cross bridges over rippling water, and soar across trestles. Small towns, train stops, and other structures dot the landscape. Keep an eye out for whimsical surprises such as the Grinch, reindeer playing reindeer games, North Pole City, Santa’s workshop, a logging village, an ice house village, and a farm town.

Horticulturally rich design gives the display a great variety of textures and colors. Plants range from annuals (violas, parsley and dusty miller) and conifers (Cryptomeria, Juniperus, Pinus,) to ground covers (Acorus, Asaru, Geranium, Sedum). Turf and ferns add bright green highlights.

The trains run during regular daytime hours 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and at night during Garden Lights.
