Ramsey Park and Pool is located in central Rosedale and offers a community pool and playground. The pool is surrounded by trees, which provides much needed shade in the summer time, is patrolled by lifeguards and best of all – free! With only one lane for lap swim, this pool is more of a kid/family pool.
The park – and even the bathrooms – are clean and they offer a place for BBQ and picnicking. They also have tennis and basketball courts for public use.
On Sundays at 2pm, adults head over for the weekly pickup softball game. The one downside is there is not a dedicated parking lot, but there is plenty of parallel parking on the surrounding streets.
