This use to be a great park, but has gone completely down hill. Firstly, almost throughout the year the walking paths are covered in horse manure. It is absolutely everywhere and disgusting. 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

It is a treasure in RI...one we probably take for granted! Dogs welcomed, but like everywhere else they are welcome PLEASE pick up after them! This is great location any time of year. We have our family picnics every year and our site holds more than 200 people and all of our cars. We also had a Halloween scavenger hunt... More

A very nice and quiet beach and not a lot of people even on a beautiful hot Saturday. The park is tremendous with horseback riding and public 9 hole golf course.

You won't find a video arcade or skateboarders here, but for an easy going day at the beach, you can't beat this. CLEAN, nice staff - great bathrooms, no snack bar or food. The horse stuff is the best, Ive heard, and there's plenty of places to be if you have dogs. Essentially - there's enough room so that your... More

My wife and I were passing through Warwick and we made a stop at the C and L Stables in Goddard Park. Because the park has 18 miles of bridle trails, we wanted to take advantage of that aspect. The stables there are extremely reasonably-priced, and my wife and I were given our own designated guide, who was very pleasant.... More
