Owner description: Park located on the edge of Exeter River and a great place for picnics, walks and fishing.

This is a tiny park but a good destination to perhaps rest after a bike ride or toss a ball around. There is a cannon in the middle of it and the Exeter river abuts it.

This is a wonderful park to visit. Very serene. I enjoyed watching the rowers out from Exeter Academy. There are benches to sit on and birds to watch. The walkway is nice and this is a great place in the fall with many sugar maples and their beautiful leaves.

Easy in and park right at launch. One way goes to Exeter, the other way is well forested slow moving river. Total flat water paddle. A nice surprise right near downtown Exeter . Quiet and peaceful .

The basketball court, which sees little use, will likely be removed.
Two cannon along edge of the Little River commemorate Exeter's role in the Revolutionary war.

I launch my kayak here. Easy parking near the boat launch. I love meandering around the Exeter River. Sometimes, I don't see another boater. Nice trails along the river too, which we take the dog walking on. Wonderful resource.
