Narrated Tram Tours
One-hour narrated tram tours of the garden's 100-acre site are traditionally available May through October for $5 per person, $3 for garden members. Please note: on days with high pedestrian traffic, the tram may not run for the safety of our guests.
The tram will not be in service during Railroad Days, July 11 and 12, 2020.
As of 2019, the tram route has changed to allow for more stops and time in the garden. The tram no longer goes up to Kenefick Park, but it may be accessed during the garden's hours of operation via the staircase on the south end of the parking lot, or from the ramp at the southwest corner of the parking lot. There is no admission fee to explore Kenefick Park.
