  • Very interesting site. The tow path is level and flat. A nice easy walk. There are walking paths in the woods that are a still easy but narrower and not as smooth.
  • A fantastic hike on a wide trail that is predominantly flat because it runs next to the canal. The trail is about 3.85 miles from Plummer's Landing to the mill at the end and is an excellent hike. I have seen gorgeous wildlife (and a few water snakes!) and the area is popular with bikers and those walking their dogs.
  • Very beautiful place very well run park
  • It's an incredible place. Don't forget to check out the nature trails in the backfield
  • Excellent walking path along the Blackstone River, view nature, places to sit, read or soak up some sun! Great venue for photos!
