The walking trails are well marked and taken care of. For more than half the trail there is little shade. Nexf to the park is an area to fly remote contol plane Shaded picnic area and restrooms near.

I really enjoy walking at Rothenbach park. Some sun and some shade. 2.75 mile walking trail or 1 mile trail. Restrooms available-clean too. Also a play yard for children.

Great play ground and mile loop for the kids on bikes. The 4 year olds even attacked it. Great place for a play date. Ate a picnic lunch too. Lots of shaded picnic tables and a piñata post! How smart!

Built on an old county dump, but you'd never know it. 3 mile paved trail thru woods and sloughs, lots of wildlife. bring your bike or walk it, and picnic out on part of the trail if you like. Playground for the kids near the parking area, plus a shorter more open trail around the field in front. Great way... More

My grandkids had a great time at the playground, hiking the trail and riding their scooters. It is not a crowded park but has some nifty things.

This is a great park to go for a walk or a bike ride. This was the first time I saw Spanish moss on trees. Very special for someone, who never encountered this before. Great wildlife and easy walk on the paved paths.
