Fantasy Garden Train Show

Submitted by on January 4, 2012 – 12:51 amNo Comment

Don’t think that because the holidays are over you’ve missed your chance to see that perennial combination of model trains and gardens, Road Trips Gardeners.

The Fantasy Garden Train Show opens January 14, 2012, in Milwaukee’s Floral Show Dome.

G-scale trains will wind their way through miniature landscapes populated with flower fairies through March 18, 2012.

The Floral Show Dome is part of Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, 524 South Layton Boulevard, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The original Conservatory was constructed in 1898 along with greenhouses for plant propagation. The propagation center not only provided plants for the Conservatory, but also for other parks and boulevards throughout the city. With construction of the Sunken Garden in 1904, Mitchell Park was able to provide horticultural interest and beauty the year around. By 1905, Mitchell Park had gained the reputation as the “flower park” of Milwaukee. At that point in time it contained more flowers than all the other parks combined.
