Where You’ll Find Charlie’s Dump and the Annual Giant Slip-n-Slide

Rosewood Park is also home to Charlie’s Dump. Have you heard of it? It’s a popular place to sled, but can be hard to find, since “Charlie’s Dump” isn’t an official name and doesn’t have an address.

Next to the park there is a giant detention 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. In the winter, it’s Charlie’s Dump, sledding fun for everyone!

Rosewood Park Details

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 kids.

Toddlers will love the colorful splash pad that’s just their size. There are also a smaller playground that toddlers will enjoy.

The playgrounds are fenced, but with open area to the splash pad, so you’ll have to watch any fast kids, as they may whiz in and out of the two play areas.

Tips for Your Trip from Other Parents

  • The bathrooms are 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 splash pad and playgrounds are in full sun, as well as the soccer field.
