  • Went for a drive through the park, but the roads from the first entrance were closed off. Had to go the the other entrance to get to the beach. All the picnic area are closed off.  more »

  • Quiet, serene, and clean. Doesn't matter if you're looking for some open fields, some quiet woods and trails, or a relaxing beach, there's something for everyone. I go trail running here year-round and relax on the beach in the summer. Highly recommended.
  • The staff here is amazing. They do such a good job keeping this place clean especially in the summer time on the weekends when it can get very messy. I really appreciate the hard work that you do.
  • Very cool park. Great for hiking. Picknicking. Swimming. Etc.
  • You can do anything here it's like Roger Williams Park. It's a great place for a picnic, to play frisbee, catch a sunset over the beach. It's a great place.
  • We were so excited to discover this park. We went for the beach, which was lovely and calm. A huge, well-maintained building houses showers, bathrooms, changing rooms, and a first aid station. The water was a bit murky and dirty because it's deep into the harbor and waves don't really reach it. But there were plenty of tiny fish to catch, and a great cordoned-off swimming area that my young son enjoyed. We'll definitely be back for this pleasant beach and all the amenities it has.
