Cactus Rock is a rock formation in Upper Rockridge. It is located at 6160 Acacia Avenue, a house with driveway access off of Alpine Terrace next to Locarno Path. According to a c.1910 flyer from Laymance Real Estate which developed the area, Cactus Rock was the influence for Rockridge to be named "Rock Ridge," in the late 19th century.
