Twilight Tram Tours present you with a new exclusive tour experience, learning about the history and night-life of the Washington Park Arboretum in summer.
Twilight is that quiet time between afternoon and evening where people-activity in the Arboretum quiets down and we get to view this enchanting place in another light. Our 13-passenger tram offers the ability to glide through the early evening hours in ease and explore what happens as night falls.
Witness wildlife activity and learn about our resident fauna, including bats, raccoons and owls. Hear about the history of the Arboretum and discover many of the plants in our world-class collection, especially those with special night-time interest. We are very excited about this new opportunity to share the Arboretum! Come along to relax & enjoy this adventure with us.
