Why the Kids LOVE McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park
TRAIN AND CAROUSEL RIDES
The Paradise and Pacific Railroad carries delighted passengers throughout the park on a one mile track. The Scottsdale Charro Carousel has 30 horses and 2 wheelchair chariots, it is a child’s delight! (Tip: Buy an all day wristband cause they will want to go on these rides over and over again!)
MODEL TRAIN RAILROAD BUILDING
McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park’s newest attraction is the 10,000 square foot model railroad building that houses four model railroad clubs, three layouts and a variety of exhibits and hands-on amenities that both kids and adults will love!
Kids say “It’s a great place to play!” With two playgrounds featuring ladders, towers and swings, you can sit and relax at the near by benches while the little ones run and play. (Tip: Grab some food and a drink at the nearby Snackstop while the kids play)

“We want ice cream” is often heard as you roam throughout the park. The Hartley’s General Store not only features hand-dipped ice cream, drinks and hot dogs, but you can also grab some fun souvenirs such as Thomas & Friends and Chuggington.
