Rowlett Park

Family friendly park. Lots of shade and pavilions for picnics, outdoor get togethers. Open spaces with grass for running around. Several play areas. Walking trail by the river. Big enough for a short walk, and hills to run a loop on.

Safety: Pretty good. Usually has a decent amount of people around, especially on weekends when it can even get a little crowded. Litter is not too bad but it is an urban area park, so you might want to keep an eye on out for the stray glass bottle, dog poop, etc. where kids are playing. During the mornings/week days you might encounter the occasional person sleeping on a bench but as a woman walking by myself I’ve never felt unsafe there.
