Great place to enjoy the outdoors

This place has it all - beach, paths to run and bike, horse riding, golf course and places to picnic and barbeque with public restrooms. Always enjoy coming here - a hidden jem.

This is a great park. Open to the public. Walk around, have a picnic lunch or go for some sun and swim. Can't beat it especially if you don't want to drive to the ri beaches in South county.

I walk here all the time. There are trains in the woods above Narragansett bay and trails on the roads in the park. Dog friendly on a leash. There is also a swimming beach.

Today I went for a walk along the rocky shore, went into the bordering woods and sat on a rock, watching local birds and a sunset. Not too bad! The water is really clear and calm on this side of the bay.

I love the area, so many trees, so much space. You can have a good time with people without being over run by a crowd!

This is a nice park. I come here to walk my dog on the back trials all year round. You need to be careful of the horses though, as they do trail rides in the woods. If your dog is not leashed, the woman will scream bloody murder at you. I don't recommend paying the money to do those rides... More

A great park with a small beach. Nice place to walk or picnic. Not recommended as a place for tourists to visit (unless you are looking for a place to walk or picnic).

What I love about RI parks like Goddard and Colt State are the ocean views ,the expansive land to enjoy the day and at no cost.

This was our last touring stop of the day. Nice park with lots of open spaces. Good, clean beach. We spent some time walking around and enjoyed ourselves.
