Excuse our dust! We’re excited to be replacing our very well-loved Seeds of Wonder playhouse with a brand, spanking new one!  Please be advised that the area surrounding the playhouse will be closed beginning Wednesday, January 17 until the new playhouse is completed. All of our other play areas in Seeds of Wonder will remain open during construction.

Seeds of Wonder Train


A touch of fantasy world in the middle of lush gardens, our garden railroad brings the whimsical charm of a miniature railroad to Seeds of Wonder, placing smiles on many faces, young and old. Come take a tour of our miniature landscape.

All Aboard! The train wanders through the country side, passing under the gondola which carries our miniature visitors to the height of “SOW Mountain” and onto the “Quail Lookout Tower.” From the height of the tower you can see a small town in the distance. The town is serviced by a trolley that provides means of transportation to the many residents. Push the big yellow button and you are the Engineer!
