Nature at its best in the city. A lovely spot and well worth the visit. Beach, kayak rental, kayak lessons, parking and accessable for nearly all.

There is alot to do at Lincoln woods. I used to take my kids to the beach when they were little. It's a small beach. People have family gatherings and parties there too. There is hiking trails and horse trails too. People jog and ride bikes and boating.

Most people seem to come to Lincoln Woods to walk on the road that circles Olney Pond lake, fish from the dam, swim at the sandy beach, or play on the large lawns. But I really like the miles of rugged narrow trails criss-crossing through the forest. I come to jog here all though the year to watch the changes of the seasons. Most picturesque spot: the point at the north end of the lake

I have visited this park a number of times and have really enjoyed taking long walks with my family here. The park has designated special areas for people to walk, jog and walk their dogs; you just have to be on the look out for some crazy drivers who seem to forget that parts of the park have been set aside for pedestrians.

The park has some great areas where one can hold picnics, parties or family gatherings; these areas can be reserved through the park administration for a reasonable fee--otherwise the park is open for the public to enjoy freely!

We walked around the lake and it was 3 miles. The rolling hills make the woods beautiful. There is a good paved road in the park and some well worn trails. I noticed bouldering rocks for climbers and there are always people running and walking on the paved portions. We also went on a horseback ride which is available outside the park near the main entrance. On the horseback ride we saw three deer who were not afraid of the horses from a distance of about 50 feet.
It is the nicest park near providence RI that I have found.
