Escape into nature at Colt State Park, where the 187 hectares (464 acres) of land open to stone walls, lawns, and curving drives of the shore in a compact dose of natural beauty. Hike around the park to see both wilderness and lawns with carefully sculpted flowerbeds. Head to the western border to see a panoramic view of the bay. While on the property, you can bike ride, hike, jog, horseback ride, go boating, or visit the skate park.

  • Wonderful walking and biking paths along the waterfront. Plenty of picnic sites. Lots of parking places.  more »
  • The beach itself does have life guards. This beach is also very rock and has very limited sand. It is mostly made of Sea Shells. There is a playground close to the beach, a snack shack, a volley ball ...  more »
  • This place is more special for me, my civil wedding and reception was held on this beautiful park, all the guests were delighted, especially with the sunset, unforgettable! The Park has more than one access, look for the entrance of Buffalo, typically venta a lot, if you're lucky you can find birds and exotic animals, which roam freely there. Site has restrooms and drinking fountain, but take your snack.

  • Beautiful location and lots of open space. The trees and shrubs are very old and provide great scenery with the water as a great back drop. Will go back.
  • Good boat ramp. Plenty of parking. Clean rest room. Picnic tables. Beautiful well maintained property.
  • Beautiful park, better in the spring & fall when all the city people stay away. Stay to the paths during the summer with your kids unless you want them to know what pot smoke smells like.
  • Love this area. On the Bay. Beautiful scenery. Great picnic areas. Bike and walking paths
  • Beautiful park for walking, blading and biking! It's great to just hang out and has a beautiful view of the water! They have a nice playground for kids too!
