Beautiful area, lots of places to sit and enjoy the area. Places to picnic, walk, and just chill along the water. Definitely worth the stop.

Spectacular recreational destination for tourists and locals alike. The views are awesome, with the Providence River and expansive Narragansett Bay converging to create an ocean-like effect. Beautiful trails and roads meander through the park to give cyclists, runners, and hikers an exercise paradise. Acres of grassy fields for family outings along with plenty of outdoor cooking amenities. I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture. Truly wonderful place!
This park is big. I'm not even sure everything it offers. There are tons of picnic tables, which can be rented for a nice family get-together. Long paved path right beside the water with beautiful views of the Bay. There is plenty of parking through the whole park. There is a small town beach which is open seasonally. Also a boat ramp. Public restrooms in a few spots around the park. The waves, if any, are tiny. Like I said before, beautiful views and that's why we drive here from Lincoln. It's worth it.
