Miniature Train Rides at Eden Springs Park

train rides at Eden Springs Park

We have a working railway here at Eden Springs Park! Charming and authentic, these original House of David engines and passenger cars have been lovingly restored by our team of volunteers and train experts. Train rides are available Saturdays & Sundays in July through Labor Day weekend from noon to 5:00 pm – $3 per person, with kids 3 & under free. The miniature trains have a long-standing history with the park. House of David colony workers laid the 15-inch gauge track, built both the gas powered and steam powered engines and ran the park until the early 1970’s. The whistles from the steam engine trains echoed through the valley until the park was closed down. The area is rich with history and lore. A volunteer is generally available to give walking tours through the park on request. Eden Springs amusement park was established in 1908 by The Israelite House of David, and attracted visitors by the car load until closing in the mid -1970’s. The park boasted a zoological park with a bear, lions, monkeys, birds and more, gold fish ponds, a miniature auto raceway, a bowling alley, outdoor amphitheater that provided family entertainment throughout the week, as well as an outdoor beer garden, photo booths, glorious garden displays, and the miniature trains. The trains were so successful that the first year 70,000 tickets were sold. Come make a memory with your family!

Admission: $3 per person (children under 3 free)
