SUMMER GARDEN RAILWAY

May 24 (All day) - September 1 (All day)

Enjoy kids’ crafts and ice cream at the grand opening of the Morris Arboretum’s annual Summer Garden Railway display on May 24.

Visitors can admire a quarter-mile of track featuring seven loops and tunnels with 15 different rail lines and two cable cars, nine bridges—including a trestle bridge that can be walked under—and bustling model trains, all set in the lovely garden of the Morris Arboretum. 

The display and buildings are made of natural materials such as bark, leaves, twigs, hollow logs, mosses, acorns, dried flowers, seeds, and stones to form a perfectly proportioned miniature landscape. Each building is an exact replica of the original and is unique in its design. Philadelphia-area landmarks such as a masterpiece replica of Independence Hall are made using pine cone seeds for shingles, acorns as finials, and twigs as downspouts.

The grand opening takes place on May 24 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Morris Arboretum, 100 E. Northwestern Ave. The event is free with admission. The Garden Railway will remain on display through Sept. 1. For more information, visit www.morrisarboretum.org.
