“waterfront park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful park with waterfront views where you can bike, fish, walk, or have a fun family picnic. Breadth-taking views of the bay at every turn.

“Scenic Park with Wonderful view of Narragansett Bay!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are visiting Rhode Island be sure to pack a picnic lunch and head on over to Colt State Park in Bristol, RI. As you enter the park, say hello to the two bronze bulls named "Conrad" and Pomeroy". Prior to visiting, be sure to Google "The History of Colt State Park" to get a real feel for the history of this beautiful place. There is also a beach area, pavillion, and playground available prior to entering into the park. If the Del's Lemonade stand is set up at the entrance of the park, be sure to stop and get this refreshing treat that Rhode Islander's wait all winter long for! I grew up here, probably will never leave!

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Really beautiful state park - and right off the bike path so you can easily detour for a family day of fun! Swim, picnic - just lovely. Shaded areas available for the non-sunworshippers; bathroom facilities. If you are hanging out on bike path, a definite detour!

“So many good places to watch the sunset”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

You can bring a picnic, or just park your car and watch the sunset. The grounds are extremely well maintained. And the geography and landscape are varied, so there should be something for everyone and something for each of your moods.
