Rockford Park

Rockford Park is a popular, pet-friendly place to bring Fido in Wilmington, DE. 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 leashed pup. Make your way to the designated off-leash dog area so Fido can have some canine fun. Please note that the off-leash dog area is not fenced. Visit Website

    Beautiful Park

    Park is located at the corner of Tower Dr and Red Oak Rd. Beautiful dog park with plenty of room to run. It is not fenced in which I was originally concerned about but now I love that aspect- I think the dogs are more relaxed here because it is not fenced in. Dogs of all varieties and sizes play together here and there are a lot of regulars. The dog owners are great and most stay alert of their dogs behavior and most dogs are well behaved and pleasant. Our dog loves how vast the park is and loves to run up and down the hill. Occasionally you will happen upon a load of fresh tennis balls (I think a local tennis club donates them?). There are picnic tables and benches to sit on and watch your dog. There are also trails and a small stream through Rockford park, we have taken our dog off leash on the trails and have not had a problem. We love this park!!

    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
