TOD Treks The Ocean State: Warwick Here We Come!

What's to do in Warwick? Check out TOD's top picks:  


  • ASPRAY BOAT HOUSE Now a community center and meeting hall, this building used to be a boathouse. This is the head-quarters for the Gaspee Days Committee, the Pawtuxet Village Association and Pawtuxet Land Trust. 
  • WALKING TOUR OF APPONAUG An informative booklet, The Walking Tour of Historic Apponaug Village, published in 1998, is available at no cost from the Department of Tourism, Culture, and Development in City Hall. This book features over 30 historic structures in Apponaug Village, and for those who enjoy walking, helps to reveal the beauty and history that is Apponaug.  Call 1-800-4-WARWICK for more information. 
  • GODDARD MEMORIAL STATE PARK The Park is open from sunrise to sunset, and offers visitors many activities: Patrons can bring picnic lunches, walk on nature trails, watch horseback riders, or visit the public Goddard Park Beach, a salt-water beach and bathhouse on Greenwich Bay. There is also a 9-hole public golf course (the Clubhouse phone number is 884-9834), which is open seasonally from April 15 through the last Saturday in November. Watch for concerts and performances at the renovated Carousel building near the beach. 
  • ROCKY POINT STATE PARK Opening for the first time in nearly twenty years on October 25th, 2014, Rocky Point State Park now serves as a memory for many Rhode Islanders of generation's past. Over the 150+ years of the property's existence, it has served as a location for nature trails, a ferry pier, an observation tower, hotels, clambakes, restaurants, swimming pool, rides, games, and concerts – but the attraction of 120 acres of land for public use within 10 miles of downtown Providence has been a consistent draw since 1850. Now as the state's newest coastal state park, visitors can enjoy the property they once made so many memories at, while the younger generations of park-goers can make new ones.
