Coming Up: Garden Railway in Conservatory of Flowers

The annual Garden Railway opens this weekend at San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers. The exhibit celebrate's the park's 140th anniversary!

The model trains and trolleys come back to the Conservatory of Flowers this weekend, through March, 2011. They'll wend their way through mini versions of the park's specialty gardens recreated in detail with hundreds of dwarf plants. Look for water features bringing Stow and Spreckels Lakes to life, and find a mini bison paddock.

You'll find the Dutch Windmill, Japanese Tea Garden, the de Young Museum, the Music Concourse Bandshell, the California Academy of Sciences, the Carousel, the Stow Lake Boat House, the Chinese Pavilion, McLaren Lodge and the Conservatory of Flowers. 

When: Tuesdays to Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
