With plenty of supplies to fuel your current hobbies or start up a new one, Hobbyland’s new location near the corner of Longview Ave. and High St. is back open just in time.

If you’ve been wondering when you’ll have the chance to get lost in another Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens exhibit, well...wonder no more! 

Starting tomorrow, Franklin Park Conservatory will be hosting the Paul Busse Garden Railway through Jan. 6, 2021. The displays are erected in the outdoor gardens of the Grand Mallway in celebration of the 125th anniversary of the John F. Wolfe Palm House.

Applied Imagination, an award-winning group of creatives and producers of some of the most beautiful garden displays, said the Paul Busse Garden Railway will feature 1,122 feet of miniature train tracks that “weave through gardens, over visitors’ heads, and alongside waterfalls.” Busse, a graduate of Ohio State University, began his model railway career by creating a railroad for the Ohio State Fair in 1982.


"We saw more people than ever connecting with nature during the pandemic, and the Paul Busse Garden Railway is a great way for the community to continue this appreciation. This exhibition invites visitors to look at plant life in a different way, right down to every sculptural detail. We are so excited to welcome the community back to the Conservatory with an exhibition that celebrates nature through an Ohio artist’s eyes."


Conservatory President and CEO Bruce Harkey in a press release
