     Interesting Features
    There are some extremely old houses on the property which make it an interesting trip.

    It's particularily fun if you've been as a child, or at least while the place was open. Lots of nostaglia in the ar.

    A description of the miniature village:
    'It [was] more like a 1\12-scale miniature province, with meticulously detailed reproductions of 160 historic and contemporary buildings in and around southern Ontario. But it [was] not like a dull museum display because the buildings [were] grouped in villages, farms, a town and a rural resort area. There [were] little people doing things -- holding a parade down the town's main street, putting out a house fire, hunting, repairing the road -- as miniature trains clatter[ed] along their tracks and little cars pass[ed] on the highway.' - Samantha Bennet,

    a good attitude
    Built in 1980, Cullen Gardens and Miniature Village served as a local tourist attraction for over 25 years before it was sold and closed in 2006. Beloved by children and adults alike, Cullen Gardens was a popular destination year round (AAA even listed it as a 'Gem' of Ontario).

     Future Plans
    The town of Whitby plans on turning Cullen Gardens into a public park. It has been speculated that the new park will be connected to Heber Down.
