We are excited to announce the arrival of a new 13-passenger tram at the Washington Park Arboretum. This tram will allow visitors with limited mobility to explore more of the Arboretum, and will offer all riders the chance to travel from the Graham Visitors Center to the Pacific Connections Garden (and other south-end collections) in less time and with more comfort! With the arrival of the tram, we are piloting free tours on the first Thursday of each month, starting in December 2015 and running through March 2016. The tram is open-air and does not have a heater, so riders will want to bundle up!
**UPDATE 2/4/16: We will be continuing the First Thursday Tram Tours throughout 2016, and likely beyond. Check our events calendar for upcoming dates and to register.
