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 Narragansett Bay. Open year round, the park offers four miles of bicycle trails passing along the Bay and through 464 acres of groomed fruit trees, carefully nurtured flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Rich in history, it proudly displays ten large playfields, a historical museum, six picnic groves containing 400+ picnic tables and the popular open air"Chapel-By-The-Sea".

We will be meeting at 11:00 AM at the statue of Senator Chafee across from the parking lot  next to the flag Poles in CSP. There is plenty of additional parking throughout the park.

Dress warmly, Colt State Park is on Narragansett Bay and winds this time of year can be strong by the water.

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 flag pole and parking lot are on the right.
