A Bit about Myers Lake Park

Myers Lake Park is a popular play spot for Rockford area families. Because it is such a large park (over 10 acres!) and has so much to offer, it is like a little spontaneous vacation for a day. And best of all, it’s FREE!

I love bringing my daughter here because as much as I love the big lake, I also love not having to drive to it to go to the beach. With shady picnic areas, a nice beach, fishing spots, and a fantastic playground, Myers Lake has it all. It even has bathrooms (with changing areas) that are close to the beach, which is super helpful with little ones!

Tips for Your Trip from other Parents

  • What’s the shade/sun situation like? Plenty of both! Shady picnic and grassy areas, sunny beach!
  • Are there bugs? A few – bug spray isn’t a bad idea just in case as the trees can bring out the bugs.
  • Weekdays are best with kids. Weekends and evenings get much more crowded and can get more rowdy with adults and older teens.
