  • Rockwood Park is like the heart of the city. Beautiful, clean, and full of green. Fantastic place to take your family, including your pet! There is a dog park on site along with a lake that is pet friendly for swimming, a playground for children, trails that go for miles, hidden caves, a beautiful golf course, a campground, and restaurant that has the best homemade desserts!!! Recommend checking this place out.
  • Nice park for nature walks. You can walk on pavement or hit a few nice trails. Trails are decent for mountain biking too but not for kids since they have a lot of big hills.
