A Bit about Rosewood Park in Jenison
1899 Rosewood St | Jenison, MI 49428
Rosewood Park has a two story slide!
And a splash pad!
Do you even need to know any more about this place? – Except that you need to get your kids over there for some FUN!
Located in Georgetown Township, Rosewood Park is a kid magnet. The playground and splash pad are very well kept, and their equipment appeals to a range of ages.
Prepare to spend more than a few minutes at the park, as your kids will be busy for a while. Something I appreciated about Rosewood is that there seems to regularly be lots of kids around, which makes playtime more exciting for my kids.
Where You’ll Find Charlie’s Dump and the Annual Giant Slip-n-Slide
Years ago I kept hearing about Charlie’s Dump being a great place to sled, but I had no idea where it was. It’s at Rosewood Park! Next to the park there is a giant retention pond. When it’s not holding water (to prevent local flooding), the bowled area is home to the annual mega Slip n Slide they hold each summer and in the winter, it’s Charlie’s Dump, sledding fun for everyone!
Tips for Your Trip from other Parents
The bathrooms were very nice and clean.
- The playground flooring gets very hot in the sun, so water shoes would be a good idea!
- The slide works best with longer shorts or capris. (I tried going down with short shorts – the skin on my legs did not appreciate that.)
There were nice areas for picnic lunch, and you can even find a nice shaded area under a tree to hang out and eat.
- The playgrounds are fenced, but with open area to the splash pad, so you’ll have to watch any fast kids, as they my whiz in and out of the two play areas.
