Rockdale Park is situated on the southern side of Centre Street between Rockdale Road and Rannoch Street, with the southern boundary adjoining a rural area extending south to Tramway Road.
At present the only fixed points of access are a section, developed as a playground, which breaks the line of residential sections along Centre Street and from the end of Rannoch Street. There is no on-site parking.
A playground is located along the Centre Street frontage of the reserve. It includes a slide, two tyre swings and a roundabout.
Ornamental and shelter trees are located in the western boundary of the reserve.
