The Lutz Railroad Garden
The Lutz Railroad Garden is truly a hidden gem! It started with a flat backyard and the vision of Bud and Ayako. In 1978 the original waterfall, river, bridge and pond were built and the journey began. Since that time, many flower beds have been added with flowers blooming from spring through summer, starting with the Magnolias and Peonies. Several water features, such as the Deer Chaser from Thailand and the Bubble fountain, add to the sounds of the garden. In 2000, the building of the railroad began. A G-scale train goes through the town, with a Granite retaining wall serving as the town’s base and a second waterfall trickles nearby. Handmade railroad ties, trestles and bridges add to the charm.
