Rock the Park

Rock the Park

Spring 2019 Television
Ages: 13 - 16 yrs.
Rating: TV G

Rock the Park follows show hosts Jack Steward and Colton Smith as they fulfill their dream of visiting every national park in the United States. In each episode of this documentary-style program, they explore the hills, valleys, waterways, and unique features of some of the greatest geographical treasures in the United States.

Some episodes focus on "Best of …" lists (best of caves, best of the Rockies, Best of conservation, etc.). Others focus on specific locales. Grand Teton National Park, Crater Lake, Yellowstone – you name it and Steward and Smith are ready to explore awe-inspiring natural features and meet people knowledgeable of the region. Excursions are well-planned but unexpected elements make for some thrilling moments, such as encountering a grizzly bear or having to scale an avalanche-prone mountainside.

Thanks to the hosts' natural exuberance and obvious love of the subject matter, this series offers practical tips, insightful interviews, and vicarious thrills that simply cannot be communicated through a tour book. The exceptional camera work captures the energy of their adventures and provides viewers with an up-close-and-personal look at wildlife and landscapes only the heartiest of hikers would get to see in real life.

Rock the Park is dynamic, breathtaking television. Expect it to inspire your family's vacation list … or maybe even your family members' Bucket Lists, depending on how daring they are!
