Rockford is blessed with a top park district and activities. Enjoy it as a park in summer, music concerts and in winter the festival of lights and the ice sculptures.

A beautiful park with a music shell surrounded by tall pine trees. The Park District has musical events during the summer months. Last year we enjoyed the Blues Brothers from Chicago. They drove up in the police car just as you see in the Blues Brothers movie. It was a fun evening. They have different types of musical events included... More

Went on a walk with some family who live in the area, and found it to be quite pleasant. Plenty of flora to admire, and it would likely be much nicer to look at in the summer months. A little bit of road noise with a rather large thoroughfare adjacent to the park, but a nice experience nonetheless.

Born and raised in Rockford--and back for a visit 34 years later to find the place just as good, and better, than I remembered. So glad to see the city continues to care for this gem.

Sinnissippi Park, and the bike path, is full of gardens, greenery, and plush scenery. In my experience, it is one of the greenest parks in Rockford. It is hilly, which means great biking and walking. You'll find many locals there enjoying all of what the park and the bike path have to offer!

I love the band shell where they have music a couple night a week during the summer and Imagination Station for kids on Wednesday afternoons.

This is a very well conceived park on the east shore of the Rock River. It has a beautiful walking and biking trail along the river with many benches along the way to sit a peacefully watch the river roll past. Within this park is the Nicholas Conservatory as well as the trolley and Forest City Queen boat ride.
