Parks, parks, and MORE PARKS. Roseville CA parks are plentiful, gorgeous, and just plain fun!
Roseville CA Parks Are Our Faves
There are plenty of plans to keep them updated too. Parks have been a fave of my family for years and I really appreciate the lovely playgrounds, walking trails, and cute dog parks that you can find at various and sundry parks throughout our beautiful city. I’d like to introduce you to 2 (or 3) more parks in West Roseville CA.
Hughes Parks is One of the Bigger Roseville CA Parks
William “Bill” Hughes Park is one of our larger ones. It has 31 lovely acres including a large portion of natural open space that is so beautiful! Of course, with great beauty often comes great responsibility and that is certainly true for all of the large and lovely open space areas throughout Roseville that are unspoiled and delightful. You can find the various dos and don’ts for these areas by clicking here.
Hughes Park is right off Blue Oaks Blvd. and Diamond Creek Blvd. at 2796 McCloud Way, Roseville CA 95747 for the North side and 1600 Parkside Way, Roseville CA 95747 for the Southside. It’s in the Diamond Creek subdivision area and is also in the Blue Oaks Neighborhood. It is open from sunrise to one hour after sunset however the dog park (fenced and off-leash) that is part of this lovely area is closed each Thursday from 6am – 10am for maintenance.
At this park you can enjoy the various walking trails along the beautiful creekside open space along with a soccer field (lighted), tennis and basketball courts (also lighted), play areas and swings, picnic fun and more! It is one of the largest parks in Roseville CA and I thoroughly enjoyed visiting it and taking photos while I was there.
Another of the Roseville CA parks I recently visited – 2 parks really – is (are) the Veterans Memorial Park and the Veterans Memorial Park North. They are attached by a walking trail but they are listed separately by the City web site and by Google maps – hence the is-are question. 🙂 I believe they are both in the Blue Oaks Neighborhood Association area.
Veterans Memorial Park has 8 acres – 5 of it developed. It also opens at sunrise and closes one hour after sunset. Here you’ll enjoy a baseball-softball field, playground and bucket swings, horseshoe pits, picnic area and basketball court. There is a bike / walking trail that I thoroughly enjoyed meandering about and the website mentioned a vernal pool preserve that I totally missed. I’ll have to go back and look for that. The playground at this park is geared more for little ones. Its address is 1750 Blue Oaks Blvd, Roseville 95747.
Veterans Memorial Park North, on the other hand, has a play area for school aged children and belted swings along with another baseball – softball field, soccer field, large picnic area and restrooms. Plus it has a lovely Veteran’s memorial. It’s address is 10021 Crocker Ranch Road, Roseville CA 95747.
Roseville CA Parks Joys
As you can see, I had a lovely time during the latter days of autumn wandering around, taking photos, and enjoying both of these fun Roseville CA parks! My fave things to check out are the walking trails for me and the playground equipment for my grandkids. And all of these provided plenty of sweet delights in both those areas. I’m looking forward to sharing these parks with grandkids down the road a bit. How about you and your kids or grandkids? 🙂
