“Don't miss!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Fabulous any time of year. Run, jump and play. Bring your dog. And a camera. And a frisbee to toss around.

“WHAT'S IN THE NAME?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Reading the Tripadvisor website for " THINGS TO DO in ROCKVILLE, MD" I was surprised to see "Rock Creek Regional Park" as an attraction. Locals do not call this area as such; it is commonly called, Lake Needwood.

For clarification, Rock Creek Regional Park (Park) includes Lake Neewood, attractions around this Lake plus other areas near-by such as the Golf Course and Needwood Mansion. Park attractions include zip line, archery, trails for walking, hiking and jogging, picnic areas/shelters, playgrounds, volleyball court, etc. Lake Needwood offers boating activities as well as fishing opportunities.

Fees are charged for the zipline, boats & related water equipments, and occupying the picnic shelters where one can do their cookouts.Rest areas can be found in the various picnic areas of the Park.

Spend a day at the Rock Creek Regional Park and Lake Needwood with your loved ones and friends. You'll surely have fun! There are activities to do for everyone, regardless of age. .

“Pleasant suburban park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is a pleasant park, with walking trails and a fairly large lake, Lake Needwood. There you can rent kayaks, canoes, rowboats, etc. or launch your own [with a permit]. It has no really beautiful spots, but is a nice escape from the surrounding suburbs.
