This summer, we are setting out to visit all the parks we have in Round Rock. Look for a review of them each Wednesday morning. Then, plan a date to go and check it out yourself!
600 Lee Street
This community park is hidden between Interstate 35 and Mays Blvd just north of 620. It is a great little park that is well-shaded, with an updated playscape and loads of picnic tables. We visited on a pretty warm day, but always felt a nice breeze and were very comfortable in the shade.
The playscape looks updated – with one for toddlers and one for big kids. My 2 boys really had a fun time on all there was to play on. And my 4 year old is really into swings right now. Memorial Park has both a set of big kid swings and ones for the little ones.
Memorial Park alos have memorials to those Round Rock residents who have fought during wars for our country. There is this WWII torpedo and the beautiful memorial to the Vietnam War.
Memorial Park Features:
9 Picnic Tables
2 Drinking Fountains
1 Body of Water
1 Concession stand, restrooms
1 Softball Field (also used for kickball)
Trails follow along the creek throughout the whole park and lead over to the round rock, for which the city is named, and to the Chisholm Trail Crossing Park.
Great Park For:
– playing on playground
– feeding ducks
– observing memorials
– sitting on benches in the shade
– quiet walks
When we visited in the winter, we saw this cute couple sharing a box of Round Rock donuts while feeding the ducks. Seems like a great park to take a break at.
