The route features a tunnel, turntable, and trestles. See railroad artifacts, an antique locomotive, and a train car.

  • This is a great place to tae the kiddos. Lots of good RR history. We go every year-it is so fun!! Don't miss it!! 
  • We took our two grandsons ages 4 and 2. They loved the train and carousel. Hartley's General was fun and food was reasonably priced. Overall fun experience. Will take them back again. 
  • Wonderful and educational place. It is interesting for all ages. Young children enjoy the most of course. 
  • I love this little park! There's a lot to do and a lot to learn. My two year old is fascinated with anything automotive so the trains are a big hit. It's a great park to hold events at too. I did my first baby shower here. I see people doing birthdays all the time. There's a mini train ride (I think three and under tickets are free) and a carousel.
  • I'm not a train nut, but this place is amazing! The park has full-size train cars and an elaborate, large building with a huge number of model trains built into amazing landscapes and villages. They also have a train museum, a beautiful old carousel, playgrounds, places for picnics, and two small locations for food and drink. It's just fun to hang out there. We're new to Scottsdale, and this is a fascinating new place to take visitors of all stripes.
  • Great fun for the whole family. Something for all ages. Visited from Chicago with our four kids (ages 6-12). There was something for everyone. The playground and model train buildings were something you could spend hours at alone, and there's no cost for those. The train ride was really fun, and not overly expensive. The self-guided tour of the presidential rail car was fascinating, though not super interesting for the younger kids. I would recommend going here if anyone has even a passing interest in trains or if you're just looking for a fun playground/park area to spend some time.
  • A fantastic place for Rail fans. A very large collection of working models in beautiful layouts for all the gauges. Some very good n antique articles on display. Some very famous coaches, train rides etc. In all a fun place
  • This place is an icon in Scottsdale. I came here as a kid, and now bring my own son here. Real trains and an amazing model train display, along with a carousel and music in the park make this place perfect for the whole family!
