Escape into nature at Colt State Park, where the 187 hectares (464 acres) of land open to stone walls, lawns, and curving drives of the shore in a compact dose of natural beauty. Hike around the park to see both wilderness and lawns with carefully sculpted flowerbeds. Head to the western border to see a panoramic view of the bay. While on the property, you can bike ride, hike, jog, horseback ride, go boating, or visit the skate park.

Love this place. The water is right there with beautiful views. There are trails along the water. You can catch crabs during low tide. Dogs are welcome. You can tell they maintain the park. My only complaint is that if you live on the other side of the I-way it's a fairly decent drive coming through Bristol which can have a decent amount of traffic at times. Over all one of the best state parks.
Wonderful place to come and relax while taking the sights in on a nice summer sunset evening. Take a walk, have a picnic, grill some meat, lay in the lush grass, stop by and fish if you want, or simply just jump in the water to cool off. There is something for everyone here.
