  • Love this park! It's huge so you can always find a quiet space if you want one. There are plenty of picnic areas and lots of open space and lots of big old trees to set up under. There is one bathroom facility in the middle and one (kinda dirty one) down by the beach.The beach is much nicer than you'd expect this high up the bay and not crowded. The carousel house can be rented very cheaply for your family or corporate event and there is even a municipal golf course within the park. The only down side is the occasional idiot who thinks you want to hear their music blasting out of their car stereo but the park is so big you should be able to avoid such situations if you want. Oh, and you can take horseback rides on the trails in the woods too.
  • Beautiful public park on East Greenwich cove. Great horseback riding and walking trails in the woods along the water. I avoid the weekends crowds, but nice during the week.
  • Beautiful. Hard to reach by public transportation on Sundays. Other days OK to get here by public transportation. Didn't see a place to lock a bike in the area where I was for the AUTISM Walk. It would be lovely to bike here.
  • Great park to go to with the family or on your own. Huge field and even 2 wonderful waterfront locations! It's truly a great place to go
  • An oasis of peace and nature. Swim, ride home paddle or harvest shellfish Watch the osprey fishing in the evening. Relax.
