The McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is operated by the city of Scottsdale’s Parks & Recreation Department. The 30-acre park, located in the heart of Scottsdale, Arizona, is the most unique park of its kind in the country. Take a ride on the Paradise & Pacific Railroad and the 1950-vintage Allan Herschell carousel. Visit a variety of shops and museums, play on our one-of-a-kind playgrounds, or just relax in the grass under a tree in one of Scottsdale’s most beautiful parks.Little trains are big fun in the park’s 10,000 square foot Model Railroad Building. From model trains to full-size presidential rail cars, our exhibits are like none other. Come out and play!
There is no admission fee to visit the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. Tickets to ride the train and carousel are $2.00 each, with children two and under riding free. Children under the age of 13 also get free admittance to the Scottsdale Railroad Museum with a paying adult. Tickets can be purchased at Stillman Station. Visit Hartley’s General Store for an iced coffee, ice cream cone or hot dog. Hartley’s is housed in the historic Aguila Depot, which was acquired and moved to the park in the late 1970s. The park is open 363 days a year, only closing on Christmas Day and Thanksgiving.
