Colt Park is a great park gem on Narragansett Bay. Fun all four seasons. Reservations for picnic tables in the summer fill quite fast. Fun peddling the many bike trails in the park and connected to the park.

Took a drive through after some luncher the water in Bristol. A great spot to walk, jog, bicycle, or just relax and have a picnic at one of the many tables in the park. Very enjoyable.
