Lots of places for playing games and cooking out. Nice little beach. I confess that I am a bit uncomfortable here because it reminds me of family reunions when I was five, and having my cheek pinched by old ladies (they were probably 35!) who said "of course he remembers me!" Of course, I didn't.

Everyone finds something at Goddard Park to enjoy by themselves, or with a date or your entire family with Aunt Millie and your grandparents! Picnic under a large tree....set up a whiffle ball game or bring wood or charcoal to burn in the provided firepits. Take a walk on the beach or along the side of the winding roads throughout...

I love this park. Large picnic areas and plenty of areas to go walking and jogging. A great get-a-way for the day. Park is kept clean and you can hold outdoor events there such as family reunions and birthday parties.

Visiting the area recently, we drove around to get a feel for the area, and quite randomly came across the Park. Very nice greenspace and it ends with a beach of all things. Though not actually in the park, it was all part and parcel. Well worth the trip, as well as a beautiful golf course.

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

I walked out here from East Greenwich. A 14 km hike. There was a farmers market on. Not sure how often it occurs but it was Friday morning. The autumn trees were stunning and I walked through the bush to Long Point. Toilets are located a little further around near the impressive carousel performing arts centre. My only complaint would...
