Rosewood Park was designed to meet the specific needs of the surrounding neighborhood. It was determined in the early design stages to follow a railroad theme for the park. The children’s play area contains a locomotive, two flat cars and a caboose. The picnic shelters were custom designed to resemble overheads that would be found at a turn of the century railroad station. Benches around the play area took on a Victorian flavor. Paving patterns around the play area and group picnic areas contain banding patterns that represent spokes of a wheel. Other elements contained in this park are an informal baseball/soccer field, basketball court, park benches, group and individual picnic areas and general turf open space.
