Dungeons & Dragons Park

31 Homewood Drive, Carbondale, Illinois 62902 USA

“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 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.

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.

This place was amazing. Not only are the statues super fun but there are so many twists and turns to the wood castle maze. My friends and I had a blast and we are grown adults. We were even on our hands and knees crawling through some of the smaller tunnels. If you go and have a blast make sure to make a donation or head up to the house and buy a tshirt or something so this beautiful place and continue to spread joy.
