If you have younger children, the park has two different playgrounds to choose from. One being for smaller children and a larger one for older kids.The name of the larger playground is called Kid’s Kingdom, but even as adults we might want to swing sometimes.
The park offers two fishing piers that are available as well. In the state of Texas, no permit is required to fish, unlike hunting. Just bring your fishing poles and bait. Hopefully you catch the big one!
If you are interested in hosting a birthday party, reunion, church group, or just have a fun day, there is one covered pavilion that is available to rent. There’s also uncovered picnic tables available on a first come, first serve basis. There are barbecue grills located within the park for public use.
Outside food is permitted. This park is ideal for picnics. No need worry about a wild bear named Yogi coming to ruin your day with your family and loved ones. There’s plenty of options in the surrounding area if you want to pick up food to bring for the day. Anywhere from Mija’s Taqueria(some of the best tacos in town) to Opa’s Greek Taverna(the feta fries are a must try) to the Texas staple, that’s better known as Whataburger.
If you have children who are interested in playing soccer or baseball, the City Of Rowlett has leagues that play at this park. Call 972-412-6170 for more information.
At the end of the day, this is a place for the whole family and/or group of friends to come visit. You really can’t go wrong with this park if you are looking for something free, close-by and entertaining.
Take some time this weekend, after a long work week and enjoy the bright Texas sun, and just go for a walk/jog, bike ride, toss the football around, play sand volleyball, push the kids on the swings, fish for the award winning bass, shoot some hoops, work on your hitting swing on the softball fields, show off your accuracy in a game or two of horseshoes or whatever you feel like doing with your time at Rowlett Community Park. A fun place for people of Rowlett or even outside the city to enjoy.
