Grew up down the road from the park and it was great! Golf course, horse trails, walking, beach, fields for cookouts. Only down fall is the beach is not one I would swim in. Since most homes on the waterfront dont have sewers, septics and runoff drain in the bay. The bech is beautiful to sit at for sun, and... More

Goddard Park has a variety of activities to choose from. The horseback riding is available along beach trails. Hiking moves through the whole park - forest and trails. There is a semi public golf course that runs through the park and of course there are the fields, beaches and picnic areas. Its not unusual to see large gatherings of families... More

There's lots to do here if you're willing to open your wallet. Golfing, horseback riding, etc. Not the best beach but easier to get to than the ocean if there is a time constraint. Nice for picnics.

Goddard Park is a great place to golf on the golf course, swim in the bay, picnic at the many picnic areas (with picnic tables) or visit the Farmers Market on Fridays (spring - Fall). Bring your bikes. Great area to ride. Bathrooms through out the park and bath houses at the beach area and A boat ramp

Wow what a place. We spent the day there with our friends and grandchildren. There is something for everyone. The kids loved walking on the beach and collecting shells. Plenty of spots for picnicking. You need a permit if you are going to use one of the many barbecue pits but you don't need a permit for any other grassy... More

Previously I visited this park in fall, this time it's late summer and it's still a pleasure. Wonderful safe beach for children, lots of hiking trails and horse trekking if that's your thing. It was very busy Labor weekend. Quieter now. I find something new every time I visit.

I've been bringing my children and now grandchildren to the spark for many years - one of our boys was married here almost 20 years ago in the "carousel" - whether you are looking for shade and plenty of space for an outdoor family, get-together or picnic or a wonderful beach for children, especially young children, this is a perfect...

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
