Ninigret Park

This is a large park, with a lot of interesting features.  They have a fenced in dog park, space observatory, swimming, fishing, playing fields, a nature center, and a wildlife preserve with trails.  Apparently this used to be an airport which was given to the parks department, and they are letting some parts of it get […]

Narragansett Town Beach

The parking lot was full, so we shot this location from afar.  We were here at 11am on a Monday and you can see how crowded it is already. This is a very popular beach, and they have large parking lots and a lot of in town parking, but it is pretty hectic.  It seems […]

Burlingame State Picnic Area

There is a small roped swim area with a sand beach, though people were swimming outside of the marked area.  They have picnic sites with grills, and a beautiful rustic pavilion that you can rent.  They have a long list of contact numbers, so please visit their website for more information. http://www.riparks.com/Locations/LocationBurlingame.html

Warwick City Park, Buttonwoods Beach

This is a very nice town park with beautiful views.  They have a long sandy beach, and playground and picnic areas are available.  There was a large marked swimming area, and further down the beach people were playing outside the ropes as well. Dogs are allowed in the park but not on the beach.  There is […]

Lincoln Woods State Park, Olney Pond

This is a large park with multiple activities to explore, including kayak rentals, playing fields, and fishing.  There is a jogging/walking trail going around the whole lake, which is a great feature. The main beach has a large swimming area and sand shore, and the water is very warm.  People do swim at other points […]

Governor John Notte Memorial Park, Wenscott Reservoir

This is a scenic little park, with some thoughtful landscaping.  There is an arched wooden bridge overlooking lily pads and water spouts, and swans resting in the shade.  The swimming area is large, with a sand beach and tannic water. There are tennis courts and a playground are available, and the facilities are well maintained. […]

Goddard Memorial State Park

This is the fanciest state park that we have seen, and it feels more like an estate or resort.  They have a golf course, an equestrian center with rentals, and lovely facilities.  There is a large sand beach with multiple lifeguards, and pretty views. http://www.riparks.com/Locations/LocationGoddard.html  

Douglas State Forest, Wallum Lake

The park was very crowded during our visit, but we were here on Father’s Day.  The amount of picnic tables and shelters indicate that it might be popular in general though, so arriving early would be wise.  There is a large swimming area with double lifeguard stands and a sand beach.  The park also has […]

Briar Point Beach, Tiogue Lake

This is a town park with a sand beach and a small swimming area.  There are picnic sites available, and some are by the water. Dogs are allowed, but not on beach.    

Silver Lake State Park

They have a large sand beach, and a swimming area with jade green water.  The water had some organic debris, but was fairly clear.  The photographs on their website show the water being much clearer, so we could have been there at a weird time.  There are also hiking trails and kayak rentals available.   […]
