Colt State Park (CSP) in Bristol is often referred to as the 'gem' of the RI State Parks System. The entire western border of the park is an open panorama onto Narragant Bay. There are 464 acres of groomed grounds that are rich in history..
We will be meeting at 12:00PM sharp at the statue of Senator Chafee across from the fishing pier parking lot in CSP. There is plenty of additional parking throughout the park.
Colt State Park is located off Hope Street (RI 114) in Bristol, RI. Headed south on RI 114, turn right onto Asylum road at the traffic light and follow Asylum Rood as it bears left to a rotary. Turn right at the rotary past a kiosk to enter the park and follow the park road (Colt Drive) to the parking lot just past the bridge. The statue of Senator Chaffee will be on the left and the parking lot is on the right.
