It is pleasant and soothing to walk through Wilcox Park in downtown Westerly. The variety of trees and other plants is numerous. The pond is also very nice. A great place to unwind, relax and enjoy.

Fabulously well maintained arboretum-style park. Most trees labeled with there name. Often the site of special events like the Mem Day Weekend Art Show, Westerly Pops and Fireworks, Shakespeare in the Park, and more. Very nice to visit and walk around even if no event!

This park is only about a couple of blocks square, but there is so much contrast in this small place that it feels much bigger. Beds of lilies and hydrangea move into beautiful old trees, then there's a fountain. It is all beautifully laid out....More
