    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.

    Great place to take the young ones! There is a train that they can ride around the park, a carousel that has plenty of horses, and multiple playgrounds. There's also a train museum and a model train exhibit that has many points of interaction for persons of any age. Overall, a good way to spend a Saturday morning.
