Rothrock Dell Park - 700 East 5th

Located next to Rocky Mountain Elementary School, Rothrock Dell Park was named in 1973, to commemorate two early families joined by marriage. William H. Rothrock (1867- 1955), was born at his father's ranch on Boulder Creek and grew up to be a famous horseman. He managed the horse herd and then the entire ranch until 1926 when he retired to Longmont. Rothrock's father, John, had joined gold seekers traveling west in 1858, but he found he could make far more money farming and selling potatoes than mining. He built the first log cabin in Boulder County. In 1893, William married Clara Agnes Dell (1873-1975), daughter of George T. Dell, owner of the valley's first hardware store at 324 Main, who had come to Longmont in 1871. Rothrock Dell Park is a 6.4 acre park and was developed in 1977- 1979, bordering the Oligarchy Greenway.

Many schoolchildren and neighbors enjoy the park's ball field, sports courts and playground. The picnic shelter can be reserved for a $35 for a resident and $44.00 for a non-resident. (link to shelter reservations).

Dogs allowed on leash, please pick up after your pet.Map showing location of Rothrock Dell Park in Longmont
