Program Open Space This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants. 

Come and explore this 415-acre wooded paradise! Rockburn Branch Park offers 7.4 miles of trails that wind through scenic woodlands, freshwater marshes and stream valleys. In the streams, look for crayfish, minnows, water striders and dragonflies. The East Area offers 4 ball diamonds, 2 multipurpose synthetic turf fields and a playground. Picnic pavilions are available on a first-come-first-served basis, unless reserved. The West Area offers 6 ball diamonds: 2 regular sized, and 4 mini fields that overlap each other located behind the Rockburn Elementary School. Two basketball courts, 3 multi-purpose fields -- 2 are mini fields and 1 is regular sized -- 4 tennis courts, an 18-hole disc golf course and a playground are also located in the South area. Enjoy hiking trails that connect both areas. This is a popular park for sports groups and nature lovers alike! The Park is open from 7am until dusk, or as posted. You may use the park's picnic tables and cooking grills on a first-come-first-served basis except when picnic areas have been reserved. Personal grills and hibachis are not permitted.

Park regulations prohibit hunting, firearms, and alcoholic beverages. Leashed pets are allowed in the park but not in picnic or sports areas. Howard County law requires owners to clean up after their pets.

Things to Remember 

Help keep your parks beautiful. Please take your trash and recyclable items home. Take only pictures and leave only footprints.

Clean up after your dog and keep it leashed. Dog droppings may attract disease-harboring pests, and even a friendly dog can scare birds, wildlife and other park visitors.

All of our parks are inhabited by a wide variety of wildlife such as deer, snakes, fish, rabbits, insects and birds. Please do not disturb them; remember, this is their home.
