Avery & Ben - Ryan Park Bridge

Ryan Park #1 – Small Pond Loop

North Kingstown, RI – This is my most frequented park, as it’s less than a mile from my house and has so many options! There are four main trails that I am familiar with, with dozens of smaller trails off of these. I will feature each section with a different post. This entire park is popular for walkers, runners, small kids, bikers, dogs (on-leash), and folx who fish and canoe.

This 1.2 mile loop around the small pond is perfect for kids, as it has multiple bridges, a fish ladder, a lake, a stream, woods, rocks and roots – so much opportunity for adventure!
