Every so often, a pint-sized train chugs past, wending its way through lush foliage and myriad attractions. This type of whimsical ride is typical of an amusement park, but the surrounding greenery suggests a different locale. The train is driving through a one-stop shop and tourist destination known as Art Knapp Plantland, a 5-acre nursery, garden-supply store, kid-friendly playland, model-train oasis, and much more.
Art Knapp Plantland's inventory runs the gamut of plant supplies, from actual plants?such as flowers, trees, and the exotic pink blueberry featured in the video tour?to the fertilizers and landscaping equipment integral to kempt yards and vigilante park maintenance. While touring the grounds, patrons can also find an eclectic array of non-gardening items, from jewellery and golf shoes to hot-tub equipment.
The smorgasbord shopping center also hosts family friendly activities including a train ride, a mini-golf course, and a model-train exhibit.

Boasting new edible creations from Chef Peter Link, The Tudor Ale House menu and The Forest Ale House menu each pair domestic and imported pours with classic pub fare and fine dining entrees. For herbivorous eaters and their yak bodyguards, veggie quesadillas burrow peppers, onions, spices, and cheese into an extra large tortilla. Simmered in marinara sauce, meat-stuffed cabbage rolls join potato and cheese perogies at The Tudor Ale House, and fried-chicken strips marinated in buttermilk and dipped in seasoned flour slink into The Forest Ale House's honey-mustard or sweet-chili dipping sauce. Breaded and fried schnitzel at either establishment audibly tiptoes its crisp crust over to tables on a bed of seasonal vegetables. A large selection of draft beers and highball cocktails further complements courses.
