Rosetta Park (Rosetta Place Park) – Rosetta Ave. and Evergreen Dr.

Rosetta Park (or Rosetta Place, as the sign says), is a nice little neighborhood park; in fact, it’s in my old neighborhood.  When I lived nearby it was just a field, and after that a dog park, but now it is a nice little neighborhood park.

This park is surrounded by a nice field.  Since it used to be a dog park, and is still frequented by dogs, you might want to watch out for dog droppings!  There are usually bags available, but maybe they ran out.

One of my favorite parts of this park is the beautiful mosaic on a bench.  It’s these little touches that make Eugene’s parks beautiful and unique.

Since this is a newer park, the trees are young and don’t provide too much shade.  But we also like sitting on the benches under the play structure.

Here’s my dad in the little hut at the top of the play-structure.  It has a nice little bench.

It’s a little hard to separate the soft spot I have for this park from my opinion, but if I try, I guess the park is probably just OK.  It’s mostly surrounded by a road, not a busy one, but still the road feels very present.  This isn’t one of your “hidden away” or “private” parks.  Not worth going out of your way for, and pretty hot in the summer, but it’s a pleasant little place if you live nearby.
