Lots of fun...and trash

Big Rocks park is really neat and the kids liked climbing the rocks and seeing the tadpoles. There is quite a bit of trash in and around the rocks that could use a clean up crew.

Fun, my granddaughter loved this. However it upset her that there was so much trash around. When taking pictures she wanted to make sure she wasn't by any. She is 8 and made several comments about why it was there and how come no one picked it up. Though other wise a very cool place to see.

This is a place you will come back for years and years, it is amazing to take pictures of the kids as they grow. It is free, and very unique.

Not what we really went for, but ended up being a nice diversion on a Sunday morning. Nice long walking trail, plenty to see at the heritage park, too

Great place to stop by especially with kids. Huge rocks by the river. Certainly worth stopping by and getting some photos.

There isn't any information at the park, at least that I could find. Big rocks about 20 feet tall that you can pretty easily climb on. Right by the river. Bathroom facilities except in winter. I saw lots of kids having fun. Free.

That was fun - our grandkids has fun - hoping from one rock to the other. We went after dinner - before sunset - was very nice. We saw families with ice cream just setting together having fun.

We went to Fossil Rim and the Dinosaur Valley SP but climbing on the rocks at Big Rocks Park was by far the favorite of our kids. They could have stayed all day climbing a playing in the river. Got some great pics while there. Don't miss this little gem!!

It is a fun place to visit especially in the summer when you can get in the water. The rocks are large so climbing them is easy and the water is cool to your feet.
