The new improvements to Rosewood beach are very nice. Love the three swimming coves and the cute wooden beach benches. They have one outdoor shower to rinse off the sand but would be nice if there were some indoor ones too. Parking is still limited...More

I just love what they have done to the new improved Rosewood beach. The playground, picnic tables and benches are fantastic. Great place to have a picnic dinner or spend a sunny day at the beach. You must have a Highland Park parking sicker to...More

Rosewood beach is where I spent most of my summer 2016!!! There's always room on the beach. The views are incredible! Perfect for going in the water, there isn't too many rocks to bother your feet. The snack bar is great and not too overpriced!...More
