We went to the park to enjoy a free concert. They offer a free concert series in the summer. While we were there we toured the 100 year old Rockford Tower. It was quite impressive and a fun addition to our evening.

Pet and people friendly Rockford Park is a ice place for a stroll on walks or through the grass. There is an historical tower to climb and enjoy a great city view. The sledding in the winter is also fun. A family friendly place

Walking the grounds at Rockford Park is very relaxing. There are paved paths or you can just stroll along the grass.
