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 play areas, or just relax in the grass under a tree in Scottsdale’s most beautiful park.

The Railroad Park is open with a number of safety and social distancing measures in place. The park will offer train and carousel rides and concessions at Hartley’s General Store. We are extremely excited to welcome all of our families back to the park, but we do so with the message that you recreate responsibly and follow all recommendations established by the CDC and AZDHS, specifically those related to social distancing and hand washing.
