Named for the nearby Metro-North Melrose station, this park features a large lawn with walking paths, a playground, and many benches shaded by large trees. At the south entrance to the park is a brick building with archways reminiscent of some structures found in Central Park. Not to be confused with Railroad Park in Queens.
