“Ride the Rails.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The railroad is a must for young and old! We go all year long with our 3 grandchildren and ride the train that covers the entire park. When that's done , get on the carousel. It brings back great memories and the music is wonderful. Then over to the train museum and air conditioned comfort if it's in the heat of the summer. Great train layout that local model railroad clubs have assembled. The museum is free, but the rides require tickets which can be purchased at the main building.

“Fun evening at park--free concert, museum, train rides”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We were visting nearby and read that a local band was doing a free concert as part of the regular weekly music events. The park is a nice surprise-so much going on making it very popular and parking was at a premium for the evening show. At the same time there is a narrow gauge train ride around the park for only 2 and 3 dollars, a train museum and a carousel. Most people brought chairs or blankets but we found benches near the museum and heard the music fine. A fun place to go.

“A very nice surprise”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We didn't have high expectations when we decided to go to the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park..but we should have. It is a very nice place with some great attractions for families with younger kids. The park is very well done with a great train ride. They even let our 4 year old sit in the engine car and blow the train whistle.

The playground is great, it was hard to get our kids to leave. Our only regret was not leaving ourselves nearly enough time to fully enjoy this place. Next time we will be packing a picnic and staying for an afternoon.

Access to the park is no charge and the attractions such as the train ride and carousel are very reasonably priced.
