The Holiday Garden Railway is not running today due to the rain.
The lower portion of the Rose Garden will be closed due to renovations to the turf after a long, hot, dry summer with record attendance. The top gate will be open to allow for visual access, just not foot traffic. While we will hope to reopen quickly, some variables are unpredictable. We look forward to welcoming visitors back on our newly restored Rose Garden turf soon.
Please note that weather conditions can change quickly, check back or call (215) 247-5777 before heading out for a visit.
