Exuberant Blooms: A Pop-Up Garden

Exuberant Blooms is a colorful and immersive floral display that harkens back to the formal style of the Victorian floral carpet beds while infusing it with a modern, informal design. Spread over more than a quarter acre of open garden, the seven large paisley-shaped “islands” contain more than 10,000 plants with heights ranging from 8 inches to 8 feet and run the gamut of colors from cool to warm. Each bed contains a wide variety of annual and tropical plants known for their bold, saturated colors and their appeal to butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. 

And because these beds are full of summer-blooming annuals and tropicals, the display will only get more colorful and exuberant as the season goes on — so come back each week!

Display sponsored in part by Ball Horticultural Company and Powder Mill Foundation.

Garden Railway

Visitors of all ages will be wowed by on of the largest outdoor model train displays in the country with 300 feet of track featuring seven loops and tunnels with fifteen different rail lines and two cable cars, nine bridges (including a trestle bridge you can walk under!), and bustling model trains, all set in the lovely garden of the Morris.

In honor of our 90th anniversary, we're celebrating the joy and importance of public gardens at the Garden Railway! See miniature replicas of iconic structures at some of America's most famous public gardens including the Climatron at Missouri Botanical Garden, Torii Gate and Pavilion at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Science Pyramid at Denver Botanic Gardens, and so much more.

Treetop Canopy Walk

Get a bird’s eye view of the forest from 50 feet up, perched on a canopy walk high above ground level. Or scamper down onto the Squirrel Scramble, a huge hammock-like net where you can look down to the ground far below through the rope netting.

Generously supported by the Jane and Leonard Korman Family Foundation.

The fun includes the Willow Wander, a 40’ long, 6’ high tunnel made of living willow, as well as a Fairy Garden that invites visitors to use materials found in the natural world to create their own enchanted fairy houses. Additional events and programs like scavenger hunts and story times will be scheduled throughout the year.
