Nicest Railroad Park, Ever.....
Apr 2021
My wife and I visited the Phoenix area for the first time on this last trip. We stayed a couple of nights in Tempe but made sure to visit Scottsdale and the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. And we were glad we did.

The park is so meticulously cared for it is gorgeous...The lawns, buildings, RR equipment on display, and model railroad layouts all were amazingly maintained. There is no cutting corners here. The day we visited the RR Park was full of families riding the carousel and mini-train, having picnics on the lawn, and just having fun...

The equipment on display was great to see also. From the Steam locomotive and passenger cars to the European Boxcar everything looked brand new. The depot and railroad related building were also like new. Plus it was free to enter. You only paid if you or your family was going to ride the carousel or train....

This was probably the nicest Railroad Park I have ever been to....A must visit when in the area.

Great playground
Mar 2021 • Family
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the huge playground. We were disappointed the model train and other activities were closed for covid. The bathrooms by the playground were dirty but the ones near the shop weren't bad. All in all, good way to spend the afternoon!

Great for the day you fly out! Let the kids run out their energy. I would say about an hour is good here. Yummy ice cream too.

Great for little kids
Mar 2021
Loved that this park was great for little kids (3yrs and 1yr). It’s free to enter and walk around. To ride the small train around the perimeter of the park is $3/person, and our 3yr old loved it! The carousel was also fun. There’s 2 pretty large playgrounds, lots of picnic areas, and clean restrooms.
The indoor museum space is currently closed due to COVID-19 precautions, so we just enjoyed the outdoor area.

Best Parts Closed
Feb 2021
This is a pretty cute little place to walk around for a few minutes and stretch your legs. The kids would probably enjoy the train ride and other "playground" type attractions. Unfortunately, all the best parts are closed to the public at this time.

Picnic at Train Park
Aug 2020 • Couples
Great place to picnic and see static train displays including the Pullman and Merci boxcar (a gift to AZ from the French people in 1949). We enjoyed lunch by a statue from Bill Keane's cartoon the Family Circus. Fun to wave at familys riding on the RR. Models and museum buildings closed.

Great city park with a train theme
May 2020
Nice city park, with a railroad theme. You can ride a kiddy train around the park. Kids will love it and you'll have a smile too. Plenty of shade and ramadas. Be aware that during the summer it gets HOT. No surprise right so go early and later in the evening but the train might not be running when late. Plenty of parking unless there is a free Sunday concert,(but COVID-19) has stopped that for now.

Closed due to Covid 19 but still a relaxing place
Mar 2020
Enjoying our stay in the area but needed to get out of the condo, so stopped at the park.Grounds are well cared for, the rest rooms were open and it wasn't crowded, so easy to keep our social distance. The train cars are fun to look at. There is a train to ride and a carousel, plus a snack shop....hope to go back next year to visit more thoroughly.
