“Great for the Kids!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

While stay in Phoenix we were looking to get outside and let the little one run around. We found the McCormick-Stillman Railroad park and figured it would be perfect for our two year old. Sure enough the train ride was perfect as well as the carousel. The playground was very large and provided endless entertainment. The park had several areas available for picnicking. While we were there we saw several birthday parties taking place. The ice cream shop was a welcomed sight. It was a warm day, in the 90's and shade is the one thing the park did not have much of. The park also had some restored trains and scale trains to view. It was the Train that we could ride on that had my son enthralled. A must stop when in the Phoenix area.

“Great spot for the little ones”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Took our 5 yr old grandson. He couldn't decide what he wanted to do first: carousel, train rides, model trains, playground, etc. We also took his tee ball set and played on the grass lawns. Nice spot to spend several hours. You can bring a picnic lunch, purchase food there or across the street at Wildflower Bread Co.

“I love old trains!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We went there for 3 late evening concerts, so we weren't there in the daytime. Love to go in the daytime and visit the old rail cars.

“Still love this place”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

It's an institution in Scottsdale. I went here as a kid, and now I bring my own kids. Not sure what makes it so great, but it's a fun spot to go, with good playgrounds and, of course, the train. Really happy it exists, and it's always on the list when kids visit from out of town.
