I typically go to Rockwood Park with my dog. We usually park and do a walk around the loop and then head to the "dog park". It is a decent size enclosure - I do with it were bigger with some more trees and perhaps a pool for the pups - but it is something! When I am up for... More

My little girl LOVES to go to the playground at Rockwood park just is perfect place to let her run and enjoy. It is next to horse stable so the horses are always of interest too. It close to a canteen, beach, washrooms and walking trails so you can make a day trip of it!

You drive through an industrial city that is noisy and enter Rockwood park and you hardly know you aren't in the country. it is peaceful and scenic. A great place for a leisurely stroll or an aggressive mountain bike adventure ride. A great spot for meeting a friend for a stroll next to beautiful fresh lakes or go for a... More

Rockwood Park is a great park for being in the centre of a city. It is on a hilltop and as the name implies it has plenty of rocks and woods. It also has several lakes big and small, nature trails, bike trails and lots of other adventures waiting to happen.

Rockwood Park is wonderful any time of the year. Walk, or ski, the trails,swim, fish or boat in the summer and skate or ice fish in winter. My Malemutes loved the Park. I have walked around most of the lakes! Great way to see lots of birds and wildlife tracks on the back trails around the smaller lakes. I love... More

Enjoy walking the trails, excellent in every way. Horseback riding is offered and sleigh rides in the winter time. There is a restaurant here as well, a unique eating experience. The seafood chowder is made fresh for each person and not from a waiting pot.

Beautiful park, well maintained. There are easy, wide trials that you could take strollers on and also many mountain bike trials that are great to hike on through the woods, easy to forget that you are in the city. I have been here countless times and almost always find something new. I also love swimming in Fisher Lake in the... More

Very conveniently located in the heart of St John, Rockwood Park campground features full hookups, free showers, and a nice view of the city. The only negative is there is some noise from the nearby Canadian National rail yard. This park, operated by the city of St John is the best place to park your RV or pitch your tent... More

We were here in June and it was beautiful. We just fell in love with the area. The kids wanted to stay for ever.
