Take time to enjoy this beautiful park while it is still not so busy!!!

A beautiful spot for walking, jogging, thinking and just enjoying. Sit on a bench at the shoreline. Pack a lunch.

I always enjoy a spin through the park. It's rolling meadows and wooded areas are beautiful. The beach is somewhat dirty... Draws a diverse crowd in summer and is subject to bacteria issues. The campsites are great for fun outings.

Went for a drive through the park, but the roads from the first entrance were closed off. Had to go the the other entrance to get to the beach. All the picnic area are closed off.

Great place for a walk with the dog. Definitely prefer Goddard Park in the off-season. During the summer, especially on weekends, the park if very noisy and crowded, with big groups having birthday parties... I'm sure its a great spot to host a party, but if you are looking for a quiet spot, not in the summer.

I reserved two sites for a graduation party this past summer. Very clean, lots of space, and picnic tables for each site. Reserve ahead of time! Very affordable!!

This is a great park. Open to the public. Walk around, have a picnic lunch or go for some sun and swim. Can't beat it especially if you don't want to drive to the ri beaches in South county.
