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.

This was my first time climbing the tower. Had attended the flower market for years and played baseball in front of it, but finally got the opportunity to climb the steps to the top. Great view and it is FREE!!!
