“Nice oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

A few miles from my home. Idyllic spot (usually) of great natural beauty. Rolling terrain, stately trees, paths through the woods. When I take my dog, Blizzard, I'm reminded of what the word "gambol" means. Nice spot for a walk, run, or bike ride. Also has a beach on Greenwich Cove and a golf course. Can be crowded and loud on summer weekends.

“Picnic on the grass, lay on the beach or visit the stables!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

On a sunny summer afternoon, this place has everything. Walk through the woods, visit the beachfront, there are stables nearby to ride horses, and even hit the golf course next door. Some weekends, car enthusiasts line the road with their autos. The park is spacious - often many large gatherings are taking place simultaneously (family reunion cookouts, that sort of thing).

If you're most inclined to go for the beach experience, be sure to check the local paper or news prior to making the trip. Occasionally the bacteria levels spike (as is the case with several low surf areas) and they do close the waterfront- while the rest of the park is fully operational.

Overall, this park is peaceful and well maintained.

“HIdden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Goddard Park is a great place to picnic or take a nice walk. Plenty of trails for dogs, horses and humans. We take our dog for walks there after dinner and the sunset and views of the bay are real nice. There is a public golf course there with 9 holes which looks nicely maintained. We have always felt safe there. On weekends, it is much more busy than week days. On Fridays during the summer and fall, there is a great farmer's market there. There is no fee to enter the park. There is a boat launching ramp.
