Richmond and other South County towns have a wealth of beautiful publicly accessible open spaces for you to visit. In Richmond, the 100-acre Crawley Preserve off Usquepaug Road and the 28-acre Beaver River Park off Beaver River Road are just two great places to visit and walk the trails.
The Crawley Preserve is co-owned by the Richmond and South Kingstown Land Trusts and provides mile of trails through protected, serene hardwood and pine forests. Beaver River Park offers a shorter, flatter walking trail system that will take you through managed grasslands and access to the clear-flowing Beaver River.
The park also has a children’s playground at its access entrance. Additionally, the Richmond Conservation Commission has developed a list and description of these and other open space sites in Richmond that you can explore for hiking, fishing, kayaking, outdoor photography, and more.
