|Example of A Garden Railway|
Located at 799 Berrydale Avenue, this 49 acre parcel once housed the City's sewer treatment plant. Seven developed acres now encompasses the round concrete settling tank , which is storage for several of the clubs which operate at the site.
In 1979 an agreement was made with the City of Medford and the S.O. Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society to begin development of this unique park. At the bottom of this page is an aerial photo showing the layout of the park.
This unique attraction is operated by: the Southern Oregon Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society; the Southern Oregon Live Steamers; the Morse Telegraph Club; the Rogue Valley Model Railroad Club; and the Medford Garden Railroaders.
Park attractions include: full size cars, a caboose, a hopper car, Medco's "Four Spot" Willamette Locomotive, HO Scale Track/Trains in the clubhouse, a working telegraph system to send and receive telegrams in the compound, and an operating outdoor Garden Railway.

You can reserve the Railroad Park Pavilion. A partially covered area separated from the attractions by a chain link fence. Although there is no electricity available, a restroom is close by. You can also access the Bear Creek Greenway from here. As train rides are operated by club volunteers, we cannot guarantee they will be operating although they may be scheduled.
