Tram Tours

The Oregon Garden offers an approximately 25-minute narrated tram tour of the Garden seasonally. A tram tour is a great way for guests of all ages to see the expansive Garden grounds and learn about our history and highlights. It is especially beneficial for guests with limited mobility and on particularly hot or rainy days!

Our tram is propane fueled and more environmentally friendly than traditional gas fueled vehicles.
