Click here to read about the folklore surrounding Rock Rimmon.
Location: Mason Street
Rock Rimmon is the largest park in the city at almost 140 acres. Located on Mason Street, this park is popular with the locals for its numerous amenities: DuPont Pool, playground, tennis courts, basketball court all against the backdrop of a granite cliff. Visitors can take a short, relaxing hike to the 150ft summit, and take in the great southeasterly views of the entire City. To the west, hikers can catch a glimpse of the Uncannonacs and their foothills. The flat areas at the top of the cliff make for an excellent picnic spot for families. Just remember to carry out your debris!
Rock Rimmon is maintained by both the City of Manchester and various volunteer activities. Clean-up is necessary to maintain this urban natural resource. To volunteer or participate in events, please visit contact the Parks Division or the Rimmon Heights Watch Group (http://rimmonheights.org)
