The train ride is a hoot and the indoor electric trains are a lot of fun for the kids to watch. Don’t be scared if the parking lot has lots of cars as the place is huge

Fantastic playground area for younger kids. Sand and a soft material around all the playground equipment. The train ride is perfect for kids and it's really nice for the Christmas Lights coming soon. Feels perfect for a train park and attractions!

The historic train car used in whistlestop campaigns is on display. You can walk through the car used by Presidents Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower. It is well-presented with photos from the era. Much of the park is otherwise on the kid level, but everyone...More

OK for a one time visit. Nothing special other than the rail ride and few gazebos. Good for birthday parties for kids. The area is also smaller than other parks like Chaparral nearby.
