McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park
Located on 30 acres (12.14 hectares) of land, this park has undergone massive changes since its initial construction. A favorite of railroad enthusiasts and the little ones in the group, this is a perfect place for a family day out. The park features an Antique Carousel and Clock Tower. The Model Railroad Building, which houses various artifacts relating to trains and rail, has been reconstructed as a 19th-century style rail-shed. Try something from the snack bar served out of a Southern Pacific caboose. The ticket prices and timings of the attractions vary, check the website for further details.
THe train park has been one of our favorite spots since my children were very small. Now that they are 5,7, and 9 we still love to go as a family and ride the train, including the "little train" , the carousel, play on the playground or in the grass and of course eat ice cream!
It is always clean and the miniture railroads are neat to see too.
I found this on a drive through Scottsdale. My 3 boys and I just loved it. This is the best value in town, with so much to do for the kids, and so much fun. There is a great view of Camelback Mountain. You will love this park if you have little kids.
Interesting place to take the kids (including the big ones). A number of real trains on exhibit and a small gauge that the kids can ride on. Also a merry-go-round. A couple of model train shops to browse in. A nice little park good for a couple of hours of entertainment. I took my daughter a lot of times over the past 15 years.
We have had several family parties here around the Christmas break. We have early potluck, bar-b-ques at the ramadas and have plenty of room for everyone, up to 35 people. The older kids play ball and fly kites. The younger kids love the playgroound area. We cap off the evening by riding The Christmas Train and seeing the light display. There have often been characters in costume to entertain kids in line. And best of all, they sell hot chocolate if your cold!
The park is so much fun for the kids especially if they like trains! Great play area for them to play and lots of tables for BBQ's birthday parties etc. The park is especially great at holiday time with all the lights and santa and the snow!!
