Jaxson is a 7 month old Airedale Terrier having fun running alongside his Rottweiler friend Ben.


Rockford Park is a popular pet-friendly place to bring Fido in Wilmington. The main attraction at this park is Rockford Tower, a 100-year-old water tower. The tower is set among rolling hills, wooded areas, and vistas that are ideal for wandering with your pooch. The best part for dog owners about Rockford Park is that there's an off-leash dog area as well. The park is open every day of the week from 8am until sunset.

    Good place overall

    Really good place to bring your dog, especially if your dog is not a roamer. There is no fence, so there is some concern of dogs taking off into the neighborhood. No water, but bags provided for cleanup. Very nice dog owners on the whole. Much nicer than Talley Day, where mulch seems saturated and smelly.

    can't give rating...

    can't give a rating because nothing on this site tells me where the dog area is in the park? am I supposed to wonder the entire park looking for signs? how about some more details? is it the entire park?

    Rockford Park

    Rockford Park is great spot if your in the city, but bad spot if your dog is not well trained to be off the leash. In my opinion it is too close to the local streets. I have seen many dogs get distracted chasing each other and run right out into the street. If your dog is pretty well trained and not a roaming dog the park is fine
