This is a very large property which includes a working historical farm (Dame Farm), but, unfortunately, you have to make special arrangements to actually visit the farm property. Hunting is allowed (archery only) in the park during hunting season...so make sure you know if it IS hunting season before you go, and If you choose to visit during hunting season make sure you know and follow the rules so hunters can spot you easily. There are many walking trails in this park, and following a single trail is not easy. We ended up walking right through the park to another street in Johnston. There are no really helpful signs available to guide you. This didn't make it onto my favorite hiking trail list for Rhode Island, BUT the foliage (we went in the fall) was beautiful and it certainly wasn't crowded. There are two ways to reach the park: the first is behind a public building on Hartford Avenue, the second is next to a small parking area on Brown Avenue. There are supposed to be rock cliffs in this park too, but we didn't see them. Plan to give this place another chance in the spring...maybe we will find the cliffs.
