Went to the beach for a few hours in the morning/early afternoon. Free beach and free parking, which is always a plus. The beach was pretty clean for a free beach too. Not too busy, warm water, an overall great place to swim and suntan!

Great park and free beach. Free parking. You can go to the beach, hike and ride horses all in the same day. Not too many places can you do that in RI. Horse back riding was an hour long. Had a wonderful trip. There were people working out in the there area doing a bootcamp.

Goddard Park has well maintained hiking trails through the woods to the beach and then continuing south on higher land along Greenwich Cove. While many people walk their dogs along the paved roads, the hiking is much more pleasant on the wooded trails.

Goddard Park is great every season of the year. For couples to relax. For families to enjoy any activity. Great beach in the summer when water reaches 80 degrees because is a protected cove. Enjoyable to run, walk, bike or play any sport. Wonderful facilities for picnicks. A must in your visits to Rhode Island.

The Goddard family left this mostly undeveloped piece of land to the state. Bless them for doing so. It has miles of hiking and bridal paths, a beach with great views of Greenwich Cove to East Greenwich and Warwick, picnic tables galore, a 9 hole golf course, grassy areas for families to play, a boat launch area, and more.

Kids and adults love to visit this park- great all four seasons. Summer has a waterfront, great trails through the woods, horseback riding barn, etc. Farmer's market on Fridays May 1-Oct 31 from 9am-1pm. Kids just love climbing on the "big rock". I love walking left on the beach and around the spit to get a look across the cove.
