Great place to bring a dog and go for a swim, and few folks will be there! Look carefully for the sign on the road as it is easy to miss.

This is more of a gateway into the Phillips Exeter Woods, there is a ball field and a cannon here but not much else. Can launch a canoe, kayak or paddle board here to go up the river, slow moving current most of the year. Some opportunity for fall foliage shots but not really a place to visit as a tourist in town.

Small quiet park
Jul 2015
This is a tiny park but a good destination to perhaps rest after a bike ride or toss a ball around. There is a cannon in the middle of it and the Exeter river abuts it.

Great place to relax and read a book.

This is a wonderful park to visit. Very serene. I enjoyed watching the rowers out from Exeter Academy. There are benches to sit on and birds to watch. The walkway is nice and this is a great place in the fall with many sugar maples and their beautiful leaves.

Nice easy kayak spot

Easy in and park right at launch. One way goes to Exeter, the other way is well forested slow moving river. Total flat water paddle. A nice surprise right near downtown Exeter . Quiet and peaceful .

The basketball court, which sees little use, will likely be removed.
Two cannon along edge of the Little River commemorate Exeter's role in the Revolutionary war.

A hidden gem for boating, trails
Sep 2014 • Family
I launch my kayak here. Easy parking near the boat launch. I love meandering around the Exeter River. Sometimes, I don't see another boater. Nice trails along the river too, which we take the dog walking on. Wonderful resource.

Nice short walks along the water
It is nothing fantastic but it is pleasant. There is water, short wooded trails, bridges, benches, ample parking, basketball courts, athletic fields. It is on the backside of Phillips Exeter Academy's Athletic fields. The signs and entrance are slightly lacking and the overall size is small but it is still nice. Lot of dog walkers enjoying it.
There is also a small skatepark out closer to the main road and entrance.

Gilman Park, not oilman park !
Jul 2013 • Family
Great park to let your kids run around and burn off some energy after a long car ride ! Lovely setting by the river, watch the ducks, and the painted turtles sunbathing on logs. Bring your kayaks and bicycles !
