We celebrate Mother's Day here VERY year (except when it rains). There is tons of open space for kids to run and play. Picnic tables and grill spots for cookouts, water access and so many little nooks to discover. The park is always very clean and never overcrowded (because there is just so much open space)!

The park is a beautiful place to picnic, walk or bike. There is a separate parking lot for those who want to bike the East Bay Bike Path too. Great place!

Absolutely gorgeous park on Narragansett Bay. Great for picnics or just dreaming. The park also often has special functions like concerts, contests. Great location for weddings.

Neat little park. Nice sunsets and good people watching, too. Want to visit in warm weather and try the beach.

We drove through on a very cold, windy morning and enjoyed the beautiful views. On a warmer day, this would be paradise. Lots of places to sit, picnic, walk, or ride bikes. The residents of Bristol are lucky to have this lovely park.

This park is a beautiful choice to visit. It has a seaside location with beautiful views, a pier for fishing, carefully tended gardens, picnic areas with grills, public restrooms, and a workout area. Its a wonderful place to fly a kite during the day or watch a sunset (when the park closes).

Who could not like the park. The grounds are always kept up and everything is always clean and neat. You could sit there all day and just enjoy the view of the water. Just a nice place to enjoy everything life has to offer.

This is a beautiful waterfront park with picnic pavillions, lawns for kids to run around and play on and wide beach. This is perfect for a Sunday afternoon in the park
