Mitchell Park Domes

All Aboard Games Train Show

The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory's Show Dome is transformed 5 times each year. Each Show Dome display has a specific theme, generally categorized as historical, cultural or fantasy, and is chosen at least a year in advance. Plants are selected specifically for a particular floral exhibit and grown in the Greenhouses located at the Mitchell Park Domes. Once in place, a show may last from six to fourteen weeks. Please note that Show Dome is closed for approximately two weeks between shows to transition to the new theme.

  • All Aboard Games Train Show

    JANUARY 16 - MARCH 21

    Roll the dice and move through some of the environments from your favorite board games! Our famous G-Scale trains will twist and turn along four separate tracks. All plants are G scaled to suit the 4 miniature trains (on 4 separate tracks) making their way through the brightly colored popular board game landscape.

    Plants included are miniature topiary azalea trees in shades of pink, miniature evergreen trees, miniature topiary tree form rosemary and santolina plants carefully pruned to shape by our greenhouse staff, cyclamen, cineraria, violas, and petunias in an array of vibrant colors, and colorful foliage plant varieties such as alternanthera, hypoestes and coleus.

    Please note the show has a singular-direction path, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
