Beautiful place to go for a walk, listen to the sound of the waves or watch the sun set. Great for a romantic stroll along the water.

This place is a great choice for family gatherings, fishing, launching a boat (no fee). Expansive open field lend themselves to flying kites or maybe even a drone! Plenty of trails and paths that lead to secluded areas of the park and to the rocky beaches.

This park is a great way to experience a family retreat with a waterfront view! It is a very large park and allows everyone to have their own space and includes grills, walking paths and picnic tables. You need to go here if you are close. It's also nice for a drive next to the water for a quick getaway.

Colt state park is such a great place in the spring, fall and winter. Summer time its full of riffraff who dont care about how loud they are or if they are dropping F bombs around other peoples kids. If you want to go during the summer just stay away from the beach and stay around the beautiful grassy play... More

We celebrate Mother's Day here VERY year (except when it rains). There is tons of open space for kids to run and play. Picnic tables and grill spots for cookouts, water access and so many little nooks to discover. The park is always very clean and never overcrowded (because there is just so much open space)!

The park is a beautiful place to picnic, walk or bike. There is a separate parking lot for those who want to bike the East Bay Bike Path too. Great place!

Absolutely gorgeous park on Narragansett Bay. Great for picnics or just dreaming. The park also often has special functions like concerts, contests. Great location for weddings.

Neat little park. Nice sunsets and good people watching, too. Want to visit in warm weather and try the beach.
