The McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park has suspended all rides and closed the Scottsdale Railroad Museum, the Model Railroad Building and Hartley’s General Store until further notice. Based on updated recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the Arizona Department of Health Services, operations will be suspended and we will reevaluate in May. As a public park, the Railroad Park will remain open to the public as an open space. While families are welcome to picnic or play in the park, we strongly recommend that is done taking into the considerations of the CDC and Arizona Department of Health Services relative to Covid-19 virus.


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.
