Rockland Park is Now Open!

rail fence and signWarren County has a new park! Located between Front Royal and the Inland Port, Rockland Park features picnic facilities, a playground, a disc golf course and trails. Today a ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the opening of phase I of the park.

Plans for future phases of the park include athletic fields and camping facilities.

Park Entrance is at 706 Rockland Road, Front Royal, VA

The Carson Trail winds through the park and connects with the old portion of the trail behind the Front Royal Golf Club. I've been there a number of times to walk along the Shenandoah River, or sometimes just to eat burgers that we bought at the nearby Roy Rogers. (See all Carson Trail posts.)

I'm proud of Warren County for their progress on expanding recreational opportunities, particularly trails. Nearby Shenandoah National Park is a magnet for hikers, but if it's too expensive or you just want to stroll along the river, Warren County offers some lovely trails.

Here's a closer look at the county logo, suggesting the meeting of the two forks of the Shenandoah River and the mountains nearby.

  1. Looks like a great hiking trail through nature.

  2. We pass this way often, I will have to check out this trail. It is great having more parks and green space. Happy weekend!

  3. A nice area. The county having that level of responsibility for a natural space reminds me of the conservation areas we have here, generally run at the municipal level.

  4. Great looking fence! Would so love to walk there, it's so beautiful, and I do miss the Va mtns...I just love the logo!

  5. my kind of favorite rail fence.

  6. We have a Warren County in Pennsylvania too.

  7. More hiking trails should always be welcome.
    Nice logo.

  8. Congrats on that new park. It looks quite nice, I liked the fence and the logo too.
