Cookout @ Colt State Park

Let's cookout at Colt State Park. If you haven't been here before, you will know why it's considered one of the best parks in RI. This is a joint event with the games and events group. As usual, there will be plenty of grilling, drinks and good times. Join us as we make it the best cookout this side of summer.

We will be at the park between 11 and 5, so feel free to come and go anytime between then.

What to bring

Good cookouts always have plenty of food, games and great people. If you could contribute a couple of things from the list below, we should be in good shape.

Stuff to grill – Pretty self explanatory. Feel free to bring whatever you like and we will throw it on the grill.

Sides – Dazzle everyone with your favorite side dishes. Potato salad, macaroni salad, regular salad. Surprise us !!!

Sundries – Paper Plates, Paper cups, condiments (ketchup, mustard), foil for grilling.

Hydration – Water, soda and the like are all good.

Fun and games - Do you have any outdoor games? Bring them out as no cookout would be complete without them. Bocce, beanbags, kickball, badminton or anything else.

When you RSVP, please list what you will be bringing and what time you expect to be there.

Is there anything I’ve missed? Got something to say?

Feel free to use the comment section to discuss.

See you there.

    hi,
    new to rhode island, but not shy, love to meet new people. I have been to colt state park, but got a little lost finding the people i was supposed to meet up with, so I will need specific directions on finding our site... I have a frisbee, two kites ( cheap ones) and can pick up a wiffle ball set if people want... this sounds like fun !!!

    • Nidal

      Hi Beth, I'll do my best with posting the directions, but it's not easy to describe in words, which is why I posted the above images. Keep an eye out in the comments for the directions to be posted sometime later this week. I'll also post a link to the Colt State Map.

    Looks like we have a good crowd coming tomorrow (including a number of people from the Games group), and lots of people have made suggestions for things to bring and they all sound great! Some of you have not posted what you might be bringing, but I'm hoping that it will be spectacular whatever it is. I'll have my grill, some burgers, some hotdogs, some buns, chips, cupcakes, cookies, and condiments, plus an array of other useful BBQ things. See you all at the BBQ!

    If I make it, I will bring my 3 children :)
    New to Rhode Island and love to meet new people.
    I will most likely bring beverages, soda, some caprison for children.

    DIRECTIONS (hopefully this helps lost souls...): Enter in from Asylum Rd. After you cross the bike path, you'll want to be sure to bear left and not go towards the town beach. You'll then approach the entrance to the park, just go through it past the guard post thing. Wave to the poor kid that has to man the post. Follow the road until it splits and becomes just a one way (you'll pass a faux beach on the right just after that). You'll pass a parking lot on the right, just keep going. You'll then be approaching another parking area on the right and a road that goes left. Park in that parking area (there are 2 entrances if you miss the first one). We are south of that parking area. If you happen to pass the parking area accidentally and don't want to loop around the entire park, you can park a little further down on the right and we'll be north of that parking area (this second area is close to the bathrooms).
