About the Rockwood Park Preservation Society
We invite you to become a member of the Rockwood Park Preservation Society. As a member you are helping to preserve and maintain the natural beauty and historical integrity of Rockwood Park and Museum.
Rockwood Park’s 72 acres encompass meadows and woodlands with historic and community gardens, wildlife habitats, framed by Turkey Run and Shellpot Creek. There is a pond, historic buildings and a house museum. Many trees and plantings date back the 19th century when estate creator, Joseph Shipley, designed a garden based on the principals of Victorian Gardenesque.
