Rockville Lake Park offers individuals a perfect location to fully enjoy all outdoor leisure experiences. The park is an excellent place for a weekend getaway allowing you to get back to the outdoors and nature. There is really no better way to relieve the stress of everyday life than to get into the outdoors. Even for just the day, outdoor recreation is a cheap easy way to enjoy the simplest aspects of life and Rockville Lake Park is a great choice for such an experience.
Looking for a place to bring the kiddies for a day of fun in the sun... we have three modern playgrounds, swingsets, and a beach for a refreshing plunge in the lake. Don't forget to bring your picnic, with several grills and three shelter houses located in our lakefront area a family picnic is one of the best ways to spend a Saturday or Sunday outside at the park.Get a little warm, come on in to the gatehouse for some ice cream!
