Rock City

You can still visit during the off season when the park is closed. Restrooms (put toilets) are still open and clean.

This is a great place to let the kids out of the car to play! I brought my four girls (ages 3-11) and they all had a great time exploring and climbing. We were there for nearly two hours and the kids were still not ready to leave. Pictures don't do justice to how large some of these rocks really are!

The gift shop has a very small selection of treats, so I would recommend stopping in Salina (just over 10 minutes away) for drinks or a picnic lunch. There are shaded picnic areas and a nice breeze, even on hot summer days!

Rock City Park

An amazing place to visit. However, the 1051 Ivy Road address when entered into a GPS does not take you to the correct location.

[Kristin, 12/31/2012]

Street addresses of attractions sometimes discombobulate modern GPS devices. The text directions might help (or try in the GPS with a nearby cross street, such as Ivy Rd and North 105th Rd).

Bring a picnic lunch and a couple nerf guns or a flag to be captured!
