This is a nice community park. Definitely come out for events... they have a lot of music events in the ampetheater throughout the summer. And the ice and snow sculptures in winter are always really fun for the kids.

Very nice park to do some pictures. But I wouldn't go there at night. I heard that there was been some bad stuff happening there at night.

The park is quite lame, but the amphitheater is awesome when they have shows in the summer and the trails are nice too.

This is a beautiful park along the Rock River. We have enjoyed many picnics, walks, and free summer concerts in the Band Shell. Rockford has much to offer for families outdoor activities.

We stopped here to do a picnic lunch one afternoon before going to the Discovery Center. It is a lovely and large park with plenty of picnic tables and very peaceful. My son loved to run around and there are areas for him to play on as well. A great place to do lunch and get away from the hustle... More

The paved path winds along the Rock River with beautiful gardens and interesting sculptures adorn the path. Take side trips to the rose gardens, Nicholas Conservatory or the garden clock. It's a nice place to stroll leisurely, run or bike. A Rockford gem

Music on Wednesday, jog, bike, a few feet or a few miles. Or if you prefer to just sit and watch the activity on the river..Enjoy the rose garden or pay to go into to Nicholas Conservatory

Spend some time in Sinnissippi Park during the week or on the weekend. Play golf at their hilly 9-hole course, or have a picnic in the park. On Tuesdays they have music in the band shell; always a great experience. Wooded, rolling hills make it a great place for a hike.
