“What a gem for families!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012 via mobile

We came to see the miniature train display, and it alone was worth the trip. Add to it all the other interesting sights and the delicious lunch, and it was much better than we had even hoped. Our out-of-town guests loved it along with our 4 & 5 year old boys, who were occupied for the better part of an hour at the log cabin. Can't wait for the Christmas display!

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

My husband and I have been members for 15 years. We live about 20 minutes away and we always get the family membership so we can take our grandchildren any time they visit us. We all love the Garden Railway but it ia a beautiful place any time of year.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

Nice place to be and enjoy the nature on a sunny day. My two cents just dont take a stroll allow yourself to be immersed in each spot, otherwise you will miss the details.

“great for kids”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

I had a great time with my 6yo son. He loved the map, the Passport (where you have to collect 5 embossed stamps) and loved looking for all the painted adorondack chairs (there are about 20+ sets). We were there for 3 hours! Also, the cafe (which I believe is seasonal) had great, healthy food at a reasonable price!

“Great local arboretum.”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Stroll the paths and enjoy God's creation. Lovely especially in the Spring when the flowers are just blooming. Love to take the grandkids to see the Railroad. They have lots of activities too, classes, and concerts... And it's very local for me which makes it nice.
