Bayside park for walking, picnics, games, swimming, horseback riding

Beautiful and very spread-out park on an inlet of Narragansett Bay. Lots of open fields for games, picnic spaces with grills. Picnic areas and fields are a favorite for family gatherings and reunions. The park's forested areas have miles of trails for walking and horseback riding. Swimming at a sandy beach. There is an adjacent 9-hole golf course. Old, restorred carousel building sometimes hosts entertainment in summer.
