Visitor Tips and News About Dungeons & Dragons Park
The sad part about this park is that it is definitely showing its age. That being said, my kids thought this was the BEST stop on the entire trip. Definitely worth a stop if you are a D&D or fantasy fan![Anne, 07/05/2014]
There's a "life-size" dragon for kids to scramble over at Boo Rochman Memorial Park.[ImminentWaffle, 09/17/2010]
Awesome! I don't know anything about D&D, but this park is absolutely wonderful! We have 3 boys and they had a fabulous time! Thank you to the family who built it. Boo is so proud of this place.[Lorian, 07/23/2010]
Rochman Memorial Park is private park open to the public with a Dungeons and Dragons theme. Big castle with built-in mazes. Lots of statues, a couple of concrete dragons (one big one), fountain, trees, characters and monsters in the trees, etc. My 7-year old son loved it as did the younger children traveling with us.
The park is a memorial to Jeremy "Boo" Rochman, who played D&D and was killed in an automobile accident near the site [in 1993].[KYJimBowie, 06/14/2008]
