We visited this park twice during our visit with family this summer. Once for a Church picnic and once to horseback ride and go to the beach. Tons of space for picnics and gatherings and they have bathrooms. We loved the horseback riding through the paths and on the beach. What I enjoy about the beach is free and ample... More

I highly recommend this to families looking for a quiet beautiful spot for picnics, boating (they have a launch), or just strolling through the miles of paths and roads they have. Can't go wrong.

Spent the afternoon that this beautiful state park with my family. The ocean water is the Narragansett Bay, so it was relatively warm. Just a great place to picnic or go to the beach.

Nice grounds, very well kept...Small beach,very nice paths for walking or running . We take our dogs for walks here..Very peaceful..Great picnic areas and can occasional see horses..Overall a great place for a picnic or family gatherings..Only drawback is you must take care of your own trash, as in take it home with you..no trash disposal..understandable though...

My husband and I come here often whether it be for a picnic, a nice walk, or to launch our kayaks... this park is quite large but despite its size can tend to be overcrowded, particularly in the areas near the two entrances, but if you drive around enough you'll find a spot all to yourself.

This park is great. Quiet and clean. You can ride horses, have a cookout, play with your dog, go to the beach, all in one place. We go here all the time. No fee to enter on most days. Some days there is a fee but it's minimal and basically covers trash pickup. Parking is free once inside.

a really nice quiet place to just walk or jog or go to the beach. Nice trails to walk on and you and perhaps your pet can bond a little while on this nice walk. I like to just sit on the beach and get a tan.

Great picnic areas, beach and great trails for walking or cross country running, snow shoeing or skiing in winter. Plenty of special events to take part in.

Loved the park, should have skipped on the stables. Horseback riding could have been better enjoyed if every other word coming from the barn staff wasn't F#*@

As out-of-staters, we were taken here by "the natives" to get to experience quahogging. What a lovely park Goddard is -- huge green expanses with horseback riding, golfing, hiking and picnic areas available. The beach is nice but as someone else mentioned in would be a good idea to have water shoes because of the rocks -- and we found... More
