Experience the Magic

For those who have never ridden the Christmas “Polar Express,” it is an amazing ride over one mile of track around the park to view thousands of lights and life-size scenes, including Santa’s Village, Polar Bear Mountain, an extensive Frozen scene, Western Town and other scenes. This unique train ride is designed to delight all ages.

Please join us. Welcome back.

As everyone is aware, the trains did not run in 2018 due to Hurricane Michael and, again in 2020 due to COVID. All of us at VMRR are grateful to all of the volunteers who have come forward to help put this event on so that families from Bristol and neighboring communities will have an opportunity to enjoy a spectacular and memorable train ride in 2021. The trains available for this event are the little Red/White/Blue diesel replica and No. 59, steam replica. The Crown steam locomotive is “grounded” for this event due to boiler repairs which, hopefully, will be completed after the first of the year.

Veterans Memorial Park offers amenities for families: a nice playground, a large covered picnic pavilion, one mile of a paved walking trail, all of which can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

For reservations of the train or additional information, please call 850-643-6646.

 

DONATIONS APPRECIATED. VMRR is a Not for Profit 501c3 tax-exempt organization.

Here’s a great idea!

We have had requests from families to be able to bring out their grandkids for private rides. Some of our volunteers have stated that they are willing to work those special events. The VMRR is kept running strictly by the donations of our visitors and being closed we are not receiving any of the donations that help us prepare for the Christmas Polar Express. We are accepting family groups of 20 or less for a 1-lap ride on one of our trains for a donation of $50. If this sounds like something that you would like to do with your family please call Gloria Keenan at 850-643-6646. The picnic table and playground are also available to give the family some outdoor time!
