  • Fantastic place to go visit with your dogs or just human friends. The park is pretty peaceful and clean [part of it]. I have seen they are updating some things for better access. They also have a parking space which is great if you own a car. You can also arrive by bus, there's a bus route that goes along the whole street. 🌳 🐕
  • Nice park. It's a nice place to go to relax and read a book, maybe about Roger Williams. There are waysides around the park they tell about his life. He's story is interesting. Check out the National Park website about him for more information. I found him very interesting.
