Holiday Trainland Chugs Along
The Hilbert Conservatory at White River Gardens has been transformed into an enchanting holiday get-away with “O” and “G” scale model trains winding in and out of villages and towns constructed throughout the Conservatory floor and running at children's-eye level. Meanwhile, next door at the Indianapolis Zoo, the grounds are covered in holiday lights and sculptures, and special animal activities take place nightly. During the evenings leading up to Christmas, guests can sing along with carolers, listen to local school choirs, meet Mrs. Claus, and even the big guy himself. Kroger Christmas at the Zoo and Indiana Rail Road’s Holiday Trainland are free for members and included with regular Zoo admission. Through 30 December, the Zoo and the Trainland open at noon with holiday activities at the Zoo running from 5-9 p.m. For more information, call 317:630-2001.
