McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, located in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, is the most unique park of it's kind in the country. If you're traveling to Scottsdale with a baby or young child, you'll definitely want to add the MicCormick-Stillman Railroad Park to your itinerary. Every time we come to Arizona we try to visit the McCormick Railroad Park.Its is just so much fun. Be sure your listing is up on all the key local directories with all your important content (social links and product info). Upon reading other reviews on trekaroo about activities to enjoy in the Scottsdale area, I jotted this one down as a definite possibility. When we were there there were alot of birthday parties there, picnic tables are scattered throughout the park, and lots of grassy space. I had my 4-year-old and 2-year-old, so with our book of 12 tickets we purchased for $10 we were able to ride the train once (2 tickets each & 3 and under are free with paying adult) and the carousel (also 2 tickets) twice for my 4-year-old, once for my 2-years-old.
For a $1 the kids can ride the carousel and for $2 they can take a nice 1 mile trek around the park on the miniature train.
We love to bring a picnic, ride the open train, go on the carousel and play in the playground. The most fun was defilitly train ride itself but we also loved the fact that it has many water features too. Visit a variety of shops and museum or play in one of the spacious playgrounds, or just relax in the grass under a tree or in one of the park's picnic ramadas.
While I have older kids as well as a 6-year-old, we were all able to enjoy someting about the park to make the visit worthwhile.


It lived up to the recommendations of others and if I am ever in the area again I woulld take my kids here for some outdoor fun!
That is really important to us California coast people who practically melt in AZ in the summer. The train goes all around the park which is a great way to start your visit to the park and see the lay of the land. For younger kids there is a large playground section as well as a mini western village set up that's perfect for pretend play.
There is a non moving full sized train or two you can climb up on and peek inside through the glass, and you can ride a mini train which was fun! They way they operated the rides is to switch between the carousel running and the train running, so you basically get off the train with everyone else and go over to the carousel with that group, then those riding the train again go back over to the train line. First time it was raining, so we didn’t ride the train or play on the playgrounds, but it was still a fun time.
Having that said I was excited to hear that the prices were very reasonable to ride the train and we got on with in a few minutes of getting our tickets! From there, we went to the old west playground, which is great for kids eager for imaginary play. In Jan 2011 the new model railroad building opened- we went to the park for my son’s 2nd birthday and he could’ve stayed in that building for hours! There is a large play area that is mostly shaded and has play equipment for every age range.
A carousel with music is also front and center and makes the visit here seem all that more spectacular.


We liked the train museum that is free and it has a huge room full of mini trains that are somewhat interactive and the kids loved!
All the model trains are blocked off by plexiglass, so the kids can get close to them, but you don’t have to worry about them grabbing anything. If your kids are just looking for more traditional play equipment, there's another playground area closer to the entrance with all the requisite slides, swings and climbing structures. Tickets are available for purchase for the carousel, the train and the train museum for a very reasonable price. The 2nd time we were here it was a nice day on the weekend, with tons of parties, but the park is spread out enough that it didn’t feel too crowded. Its very cute.The whole park is clean and nice and every child in the area seems to have a smile on their face.
There's also a fun carousel and a great number of trains to visit and model trains to check out. The snack shops have standard fare (hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, soft-serve ice cream, hot chocolate), but the kids meals are really cute & come with prizes, in a ‘boxcar’. We liked walking through the model railroad displays and my husband and 12-yr-old enjoyed a visit to the train museaum while my boys tossed a football or played on the playground.
One of the shops has a train table for kids to play at & lots of train souvenirs & train party supplies.
