Friday, 7pm Ice Cream Train. Regular rides Saturday, 11am and 2pm: Come, take a step back in time to the first half of the last century and ride a train like your grandparents may have ridden. Board our 1920's era passenger coach, or our open-air excursion car and take a ride behind our 1950's diesel locomotive through Old Towne Belton, Missouri and the surrounding area.
thru Sept. 4: This summer the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are again home to the mystical domains of gnomes, fairies, elves, sprites, trolls, and other garden creatures along a woodland trail. This is a delightful exhibit you won't want to miss!
thru Sept. 10: All aboard for fun learning adventures with Thomas The Tank Engine as you help him be a "Really Useful Engine." Explore the sights and sounds of the Island of Sodor: visit Knapford Station and the Sodor Steamworks, climb inside Thomas' cab, fix Percy's wobble wheels, pull levers for train noises, and race trains along a giant track. This free exhibit is an imaginative adventure for the whole family!
