The first settler here was Smith Lapham, after whom the place was initially called Laphamville. The name was changed to Rockford because the residents wanted a shorter name. When it comes to taking care of your dogs' health, Rockford has 3 choices of clinics and hospitals that will make sure your pooch is well taken care of.

    Around 15 miles away from Rockford, you'll find Hillcrest Dog Park, where your pooch can have a ball! One of the best features that this park offers for your pooch is separately fenced areas for small and large doggos. Seasonally, you'll have access to fresh water -- in the colder months, it's recommended that you bring your own. If you forget your poop baggies, you will find some provided in the park. The human visitors can rest up on the park's benches and chill with their pets in a mostly shaded area. No need to worry about a membership or providing proof of vaccinations -- this park is completely free!

    Covell Dog Park is 16 miles away from Rockford. Pups can enjoy a one-acre off-leash area here. Although the dog park is securely fenced, there aren't separate areas for differently sized pooches, so if your pooch doesn't play well with dogs of all shapes and sizes, avoid this park. The ground is mixed with grass and wood chips, and in the summer, the staff puts out small kiddie pools where doggies can dip their paws! The park has a hose to rinse off your mucky mutt, and there's also parking nearby. Bags are only provided sometimes, so don't forget to bring some with you just in case.

    Seventeen miles away from Rockford is another furrific dog park that you won't want to miss: Wyoming Dog Park. This park is most suitable for residents and frequent visitors, since it requires a membership to visit. If you're just passing through, this park probably isn't the best option. Your membership will grant you access to separate areas for small and large puppers, drinking water, and poop baggies. (Note that the park sometimes runs out of baggies, so bring some just in case.) For playing, there is a big pile of sand where doggies can dig, climb, and have fun. Plenty of shade and picnic tables with benches are great amenities for the pet parents.
