My first visit to Rosewood Beach since the park district renovated this beach. The Highland Park Park District transformed a sleepy Lake Michigan beach into an amazing beach park.

Beautiful landscaping and not crowded ever. A gem! The lagoon type design makes it easy for the little kids and everyone else to go in the Lake.

Just in the neighborhood and found the beautiful beach. Very quiet and clean. Very nice restrooms as well. Great place to spend a sunny afternoon. Real cool trails leading in.

A local North Shore Chicago gem: it's a fantastic, clean beach with lovely swimming and nature areas, decent bathrooms/showers, amenities, and a beautiful boardwalk. Family friendly.

I'd never visited before the Army Corps of Engineers revamped but beach, but what is there now is fabulous. Great for all ages! Nice trails to walk as well.

I used to go to the beach in Highland Park with my Mom. Lake Michigan was always colder than I thought. However, there is plenty of beach to hang out at and there is enough parking most of the days. We enjoyed the vistas and...More

The new improvements to Rosewood beach are very nice. Love the three swimming coves and the cute wooden beach benches. They have one outdoor shower to rinse off the sand but would be nice if there were some indoor ones too. Parking is still limited...More
