“Very nice park”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We went for an afternoon walk with elderly grandparents. Beautiful grounds an views. As it was a very warm May afternoon there were lots of people sunbathing and enjoying walks with their dogs. It was a very still day with beautiful views across the coastline.

This park is huge! Great place for everyone especially my dog Whedon. We take him for walks there daily and let him run around in one of they many huge fields.

“Summer Hot Spot”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I have a family outing every September at the park. It is beautiful to spend the day. The beach is peaceful and the bike trail is perfect. Highly recommended for any type of recreational fun!

“Peaceful and beautiful place”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

You can drive through the park, walk or bicycle. Have a picnic overlooking Narragansett Bay. You can reserve picnic areas for family parties, reunions, etc.

“Lovely views, easy driving, nice walking paths”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Colt State Park is a large park with paved roads, walking trails, great views of Narragansett Bay, and lots of space. It's hard to believe that on a sunny weekend this park can be crowded, but it's that popular. Many groups plan ahead to hold events there, like family picnics and small car shows. You can reserve the picnic areas ahead of time, otherwise you just arrive early in the morning and grab the best spot you can. We have been a couple of times for small car shows. Often there are several small car shows at the same time, so there are many opportunities for car viewing and people watching. I have not been there when the park is quiet, but if I lived closer I'd be over there for a walk every day.
