We take our chairs and sit under the trees while watching paddle boarders and beach goers. Tends to be more secluded and quiet before the summer season.

The Buttonwoods City Park, otherwise known as the Warwick City Park is great! There are trails to walk, jog, bike or walk your dog. In addition to these great trails (3 miles round), they have a big and small dog park (completely fenced in), a ball field, basketball courts, soccer field, even a field hockey rink. To top this city... More

Nice place to take a swim, have a cookout or just to relax. Don't plan on jumping in the waves as there aren't any.

It is one of the few parks that the city rake, clean up and maintain. It does not contaminate with bacteria as often as the rest.

This was my late mother's favorite beach, and she took me here when I was a child and a teenager. I loved it - especially when everything was "clean."

Great spot to let your dog play with others. There are two areas for the dogs, small dog and large dog. But there is no shade in the small dog area, where there is in the large dog area. But there are lawn chairs on both sides to sit on and lots og fun people to chat with.

so disappointed when we finally got a free afternoon to go to the local beach - it was shady and sketchy and the people in the neighborhood didn't make it feel safe.

It was a visit from Texas relatives whom I really didn't know where to take them as they have a 2 yr old son. Chose this park and this Warwick beach and the parents and I actually had tears watching a land locked Texas boy rolling in the sand and the shallow salty water. They're coming back next year for...
