  • Grew up swimming at Rosewood and lesser known Ravine Drive. Both are decent beaches to cool off in and Rosewood is fairly big.

  • The beach is very clean and kids/ family friendly. The parking lot at Rosewood Ave is for Highland Park Residents only, others must park at the end of Roger Williams Ave. The lots are limited and pay per hour ($15) or 4 hrs ($40). During peak hours, you will have to park at the paid lot at elementary school and walk. Also there is a fee ($10) per person to enter into the beach, you can buy there onsite and Kids under 3 are free. Overall Good but costly for a casual visit.
  • Gorgeous beach! Just be aware they do try to make this not friendly for anyone who doesn’t live in this wealthy area. You have to pay for parking ($10 an hour) and $10 per person beach pass. They really do not want non locals (aka not rich white folks) coming here lol
