New this year is a track and suspension bridge made from all natural materials found at Heritage. The bridge designed by Horticulture Director Les Lutz is an exact replica of the famed George Washington bridge in New York. The track has already been put to good use with a vintage ‘G’ Scale Union Pacific Passenger train zooming along the 127′ feet of track.

Gardens Aglow will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from November 28 – December 28, 2014 from 4:30 – 8:30pm.
