Holiday Garden Railway

Check out this great video of kids enjoying the Holiday Garden Railway from Pete Mazzaccaro of  He recently took his three-year-old son to see the Garden Railway exhibit here at Morris Arboretum who, as the video shows, thoroughly enjoyed the decorated trains running through a quarter mile of track and holiday themed buildings.  Check out his article at this link

I love the fact that children and adults alike get a huge kick out of watching the trains (and geese swans) scoot along the track and the way this exhibit not only entertains but also connects multiple generations.

Here are a few more pictures of some of the miniature buildings that are all dressed up for the holidays.  The Holiday Garden Railway will be open through January 2nd (closed Dec 24, 25 and Jan 1).


  1. such a wonderful project, keeps getting bigger and better each year, thanks to all those hard working folks who keep it thriving

  2. Thanks - it really is an awesome exhibit - one that I look forward to every year!

  3. This was our 1st yr attending the holiday garden railway surprise, it was amazing. Only wish there were other evenings open to share the beautiful lights to our non-member friends. Bravo...and thank you!!
