The pet-friendly park named in honor of former Dorchester County Councilman (1992-2012)Richard H. Rosebrock opened to the public in September of 2011.
Rosebrock Park features 1.5 miles of hiking trails that lead visitors from the parking lot trailhead through 70 acres of protected bottomland forest and wetlands to the banks of the Ashley Scenic River.
Located at 507 Beech Hill Road, Rosebrock Park is open from dawn to dusk and offers a covered picnic shelter (available on a first come, first serve bases) and 0.25 miles of Ashley Scenic River frontage.
A restroom facility complete with water fountains and a water bottle filler was completed in 2019. The majority of funding was generously provided by the Dorchester County State Legislative Delegation through an allocation of Park and Recreation Development grant monies. Students from Ashley Ridge High School Fine Arts program contributed the beautiful mural on the restroom wall.
Park visitors can enjoy eleven trailside interpretive panels along the 1.5 mile trail. The panels highlight park themes related to history, conservation, science, engineering and more. Each sign also includes a QR code that provides a link for additional information.
