A country atmosphere located just minutes from downtown Rockford.

This affordable and family-friendly facility provides a variety of opportunities to promote healthy, positive interactions between people and animals. Lockwood Park also features picnic tables, shelter pavilions, and playgrounds.

Enjoy Lockwood's beautiful trail system in many ways - hiking, biking, or horseback riding! There are 146 acres with a 15-mile multi-use trail system (no motorized vehicles) winding through both Lockwood and Anna Page parks.
