“12 sided dice not included”

Jeremy Rochman Memorial Park. From Carbondale drive east two miles on Hwy 13, then turn south at the Wal-Mart onto Hwy 12/Giant City Rd. Drive 3.5 miles. Turn left, onto Homewood Drive to the parking lot. If you cross No Name Rd you've gone too far. "There is a sad story behind the magical kingdom, though. Local investment mogul Barrett Rochman built the park as a memorial to his teenage son. Jeremy "Boo" Rochman, an avid Dungeons & Dragons fan, died more than a decade ago in a car accident nearby. According to an article in the Southern Illinoisan, some of the statues in the park are based on painted figures found among Boo's possessions." - CNET

Great stop to burn an hour with energetic kids. The fort was tons of fun. This is a free park, but they do accept donations.

This is an amazing free park for kids. A huge multi-level wooden and stone castle, complete with bridges, towers and dungeon, is the centerpiece. There is also a huge climbable concrete dragon, and several other statues, fountain, benches, etc on the grounds. There are port-a-potties, and a food trailer selling stuff during popular hours.

Great park, lots to explore and tons of photo ops. It was larger than I assumed from the photos. If you like D&D or fantasy in general, it's a must see. There's a couple Pokestops and gyms as well!

This park was totally awesome. My sons, 8, 11, & 19 loved it and so did I. I really enjoyed the artwork of the mosaic-topped benches and also the giant dragon.

What a wonderful tribute to a loved son. The details in the figures were intricate, and don't forget to enter the wooden fortress... MUCH bigger from the inside! My friend & I got a bit lost in the myriad of rooms there were to explore, with a ton of details hidden throughout.

Place looks awesome! At first, we drove to Homewood Dr, and it was just a neighborhood cul-de-sac. The direction sucks; park ON the next street, No Name Rd.

GO GO GO! Super nerdy. Super fun. Super cute. Make sure to donate a few bucks to keep the park up and running. Had a great time running around with the puppy and taking pictures.
