Nearly 85 acres of open grassland, walking trails, and top of the line recreational facilities make Ber Juan the centerpiece of Rolla’s parks. Ber Juan park is located in the east-central part of Rolla, bordered on the south by 10th Street (Highway BB), on the west by Holloway and Farrar, on the north by 14th and 18th streets, and on the east by Burgher Branch. Key areas of interest with the park are The Centre, Rolla’s Health and Recreation Complex, accessible off of Holloway Drive at 12th Street; the tennis courts and SplashZone, at the corner of 14th and Holloway; a playground and picnic area on 14th street east of the SplashZone; the Skate Park at 14th and Farrar; and the Ber Juan Sportsplex, a multi-field baseball, softball, and soccer complex located in the north-east corner of the park, off of 18th Street. The Rolla High School baseball team makes use of Bayless Field, part of the Sportsplex, for all home games.
In addition to all these great features, a walking and exercise trail encompasses most of the Park, with outdoor fitness equipment stationed along the trail, and useful exercise guides that allow you to measure and improve your fitness level. Much of the south-eastern portion of the Park, along 10th Street and up the line of Burgher Branch, is open, rolling grassland, crossed by walking paths and strategically shaded by stands of trees.
In total, Ber Juan Parks offers 2 picnic shelters, 3 softball fields, 1 baseball field, 6 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, 2 football / soccer fields, 3 playgrounds, and 1.5 miles of exercise trails.
