Siouxland Families Explore Rose Hill Park

Sioux City's newest splash pad is reviving interest in a previously quiet park. Here's a peek at why:

Want to know more? Here's what I found out:

Where is RoseHill Park?

RoseHill Park is 1t 1431 Grandview Boulevard, between 14th and 15th Street. The splash pad and play structure are near the center of the block, and there is parking accessible from the alley between Grandview Boulevard and Summit Street, behind the park. Rose Hill is a historic neighborhood established in 1884. Many of the buildings are much newer, but if you're an architecture fan, you may enjoy driving around the neighborhood to admire the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Prairie School styles homes. However, the neighborhood has quite a bit of graffiti and I don't recommend it as an ideal location for a walk.

Rose Hill Playground

The brand new Rose Hill playground consists of a poured rubber surface and two firefighter themed play structures and a big tire swing. They are really cute and my kids loved them! The entire park is fenced in and there are benches you can sit on to watch your kids play. There is also a half court basketball court , and a handicap accessible restroom building.

Rose Hill Splash Pad

The highlight of Rose Hill Park is an adorable firefighter themed splash pad. The centerpiece of the splash pad is a water slide built into a firetruck! There are also water features that look like fire hydrants, Dalmatian puppies, and hoses! There is a shaded seating area with a picnic table overlooking the splash pad. The entire thing is very cute and well-done.
