  • This park is so much fun for kids and adults that enjoy trains. Since it is a City of Scottsdale park, it is budget/family friendly! Tickets to ride the train and merry-go-round are $1 each. The snack shop also has great ice cream. There is a lovely museum. The park does get busy, especially when the weather is nice. They have holiday lights and also summer concerts!
  • This place was very neat. My boys, mother in law and myself all enjoyed ourselves! Good food too for the price...and the train ride was longer than others I have been on. Well worth going. There is also a free train exhibit towards the back of the park with fun figurines, little towns and things (building with tall glass windows)...Kids loved that especially!
  • This park is for all train lovers. From the fully restored Engine and Pullman cars, to the scaled down train that takes you on a tour of the beautifully landscaped park and free kids play areas, to the building full of model trains dedicated to each and every age group, you will not be disappointed. There is a $2 fee to ride the train, carousel and view the museum and restored cars but otherwise it's all free! You may picnic, celebrate with a birthday party or just sit and chill out on a bench enjoying the Disney tunes coming from the carousel. There is also an ice cream shop where you can also buy gifts, drinks and snacks. You will love this place!
  • Your kids will have memories of this place for the rest of their lives. There's so much for them to do, and for the adults as well. Great places to have parties and if you are into trains, you'll be in heaven. There's even a model railroad club that has a big setup there that you can see. Seriously, take your kids here. They will love it.
  • An inexpensive, very kid friendly place to bring a family. They have extensive playgrounds, model train areas, museums, a mini train to ride the family, and the large carousel. The food and drink prices are not bad, although not super extensive, they are quite enough for a fun family outing. Other food options abound in the upscale neighborhood. The model train museum has very nice, clean restrooms with changing stations in both the men's and women's. Parking is generous off of the Indian Bend entrance just to the east of Scottsdale road. Some of the activities require inexpensive tickets acquired in the ticket office. The staff is generally helpful and reflect the kid orientation of the park.
