Every trip to Rhode Island, I always manage to drive thru Goddard State Park. To reach the park, drive Down route 1, Post Rd thru East Greenwich and at the bottom of the hill, bear left at the rotary. After about 1 mile, look for the signs to the entrance of the park. Here you will find acres of grassy... More

If you are in the East Greenwich or Warwick area, its worth a visit. A beautiful park with golf, horse back riding and a beach. Not the most pristine waters but safe.

I love the hiking and walking trails here. We take the dogs too. You can go horseback riding, swimming or play golf. There is a carousel and picnic area. Clean restrooms and a snack bar.

I took my grandson over for his cross country training for school. Very very nice park and really well kept. The beach area was pristine.

Not to mention is is sometimes on the beach. Second, during the summer months the park seems to attract trashy people who play offensive music extremely loud from... More
