I love to go walking in Slater park. I particularly like to walk around the pond, visit the dog park and walk down the bike trail. People are friendly and will say hello when walking around. There's a nice outdoor restaurant called Len's that I stop by on occasion as well.

Very nice park for family, sports and relaxation. The farm animals are a special treat for little ones and there are toys for little kids to share. Kids can run free and express themselves. The children's playground is great for different aged kids. They seem to all get along and accept newcomers.

There's lots of space to roam here, on bikes or on foot. You can go in circles on the carousel or watch your dog race around in the dog run.

My daughter and I came to this park when we moved from Dover, NH to Seekonk, MA. It's a nice place for kids to ride their bicycles and a good walk for moms around the pond. There is a nice carousel that opens on weekends from Spring to Fall. I am not sure if it's open in the winter. Car... More

We went to ride the carousel today. It was awesome and my two boys loved it! The rides were 50 cents and we rode three times! The carousel dors move fast but it was great to see the smiles on my kid's face!

Clean park,great for families or just walking the paths or around the pond. Good place to have parties as they have picnic tables and charcoal grills. The summer has lots of festivals and the carousel opens.

I never realized that American textile industry and the beginning of the industrial revolution began here in the Black River Valley. We first visited the visitors center, which is right across the street from the Slater mill. There is a large parking lot next to the building. Our tour guide took us into three buildings: a home, the textile mill... More

Great place to visit for a morning or afternoon. The river is long and the waterfall is awesome. The Mill itself has a great giftshop with some unusual items. The grounds around it are lovely.

We spent lots of time at the playground. Was a little disappointed in the condition of the petting zoo. Other than that, we had a fantastic time
