With a grassy lawn, picnic table, and bench by the river, Paskamansett Park is a peaceful setting for a streamside picnic with friends and family. One of the park’s most fantastic features is the canoe launch on the Paskamansett River. Water levels in the river can be shallow, so you might not make it far – but for families with small children, it’s a fun place to put in a canoe and explore nearby.
Paskamansett Park has a short walking trail that runs for about one-tenth of a mile through the woods before ending at private property. For local residents, this is a perfect place to take a short walk with your dog after work.
Habitats & Wildlife
The river access at Paskamansett Park makes this a good spot to look for wildlife like fish and frogs. Sit quietly along the banks of the river, and you might see a turtle sunning itself on a log. Upland forest habitat extends along the banks of the river, providing shelter for birds and small woodland mammals.
