Visit more than 25 of Northern Nevada’s most spectacular ponds and garden railroads during the unique, two-day Water & Rails Pond and Garden Railroad Tour on July 12th & July 13th and help a good cause.

Organized by MacLean Financial Group and Rail City Garden Center, the tour is now in its 9th year. Tickets are $20 for one person, $30 for two people, $30 for one person plus BBQ, and $50 for two people plus BBQ (children age 12 and younger are free).

The family oriented ‘Water & Rails Pond & Garden Railroad Tour’ event presents self-guided tours of serene gardens, Koi-filled ponds and model trains that travel more than 1,000 feet of track, under tunnels and through miniature towns. It’s a fun day for all ages.

The self-paced tour allows you to visit as many of the ponds and gardens as you like. Pick up tips from the homeowners on the tour for your own garden.

Proceeds from the event benefit ALS of Nevada an independent nonprofit organization serving ALS patients and their families in the Silver State.

ALS is a motor neuron disease and is often called Lou Gehrig’s disease after the New York Yankees baseball icon that was diagnosed with it in 1939 and died two years later.

ALS Nevada provides programs that offer emotional, physical and financial assistance to ALS patients and their families. Programs include home visits, medical equipment loans, counseling, a resource library, support meetings and more. ALS is progressive and always fatal. It affects the cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement.
