Lockwood Park Trailside Equestrian Centre and Children's Farm


A country atmosphere located just minutes from downtown Rockford. Over 146 acres of gently rolling hills, meadows, woods, natural areas, and a stream provide a backdrop for your visit to Lockwood Park Trailside Equestrian Centre and Children's Farm. This affordable and family-friendly facility provides a variety of opportunities to promote healthy, positive interactions between people and animals. Lockwood Park also features picnic tables, shelter pavilions, and playgrounds.

Enjoy Lockwood's beautiful trail system in many ways - hiking, biking, or horseback riding! There are 146 acres with a 15-mile multi-use trail system (no motorized vehicles) winding through both Lockwood and Anna Page parks.

We offer hay rides, a pony ring, and trail rides.

Join us on weekends during the month of October, for Locktoberfest. We'll get you in the mood for fall with great family activities, pumpkins, scavenger hunts, and much more!

We also host a special event on the third Saturday in May called Animal Mania.
