Old Settlers Park encompasses a vast 645-acres in Round Rock, Texas. With over 3-miles of trails, open fields for kite flying and playing ball, sports fields, picnic spots, pavilions, and a water park, one can easily spend an entire day exploring this city park.
The newly renovated Joanne Land Parks sits close to the bank of the lake just off of Harrell Parkway. The park features first-of-its-kind
equipment, including a Gravity Rail - a swing that glides along a track, speeds to a downward
slope, curves up a hill that carries kids up, then down again.
There are many climbing towers, obstacles, slides, tunnels and more that will appeal to children of all ages.
My group consisted of children ranging in age from 5-13 years old. Impressively, the play structures at Joanne Land Park appealed to all of them, including the oldest. For families with children of all ages, this is a gem of a park as it challenges such a wide range.
There is a half wall built around most of the play area, perfect for parents to sit and watch their children play, however, there is not a lot of shade in this area, so I'd recommend bringing lawn chairs or a blanket to spread out beneath one of the trees for a shaded spot in the hot summer months. One downside to this park is the lack of a fence. Parents, be sure to keep a close eye on your kiddos as the parking lot and lake is within close proximity to the play area.
Restrooms are available on-site. There is also a large parking lot, making it easy to find a space on the busiest of days.
