Train Observation Area

An exciting new project has emerged as a part of the McCord Park Renovations. Plans are underway for a new train observation area. The project is a partnership between the City of Worthington and the Worthington AM Rotary Club. People visiting the Community Center may have noticed the caboose in the parking lot. It was donated by the Rutherford Family and will be the focal point for the project. When renovations are complete, visitors will be able to climb aboard and check out the authentic caboose, learn more about the railroad and watch the trains as they pass through our community from an observation area outside the caboose. Several organizations including the Central Ohio Model Railroad Club are helping put the project together. If you have interest in giving to the project or providing expertise, please contact a staff member at Worthington Parks and Recreation at 614-436-2743.
