I enjoyed walking around here. The locomotive was interesting to look over. The area grounds are nice and has a great view of the Colorado river. Looks like a nice spot for a picnic when the weather is not too hot.

There really isn't much here but a nice trail along the Colorado River, there are a couple play areas for children and it looks clean and safe around the area. You can walk for a long time on the trails.

Very old train, very cool to see - if you are close by or staying at the Hilton. Unless you LOVE trains, I wouldn't drive an hour to see it. Whole visit might take 5-10 minutes.
