All aboard! Head Downriver for an awesome train theme playground and special mini train rides with Great Lakes Live Steamers in Southgate.


If you have a train lover at home make the trip to Kiwanis Park for the life size train your kids will love climbing on and sliding down. Not only that, they can run around two play structures with rock and log walls, sensory elements and slides. Take a spin on giant acorns, race through a log tunnel and test your balance on wobbly, wooden leaves.


On the third Saturday and Sunday of each month Great Lakes Live Steamers offers FREE mini train rides at the park from 12pm to 4pm (although donations are appreciated). Train rides are offered each month beginning in May. Holiday rides are hosted in October and December.


Not up for a trip to Kiwanis Park? Catch Great Lakes Live Streamers at Star Jaycee Park in Royal Oak the first Saturday and Sunday of each month from May to October.
