Dog Areas in Potowomut

Potowomut, or ‘land of fires’ in the Native American tongue of Narragansett, is a small town just south of the city of Warwick in Kent County. There is a little confusion over where Potowomut belongs geographically, as it is often thought of as part of Warwick, and was originally a village in the Warwick Township, but shares a ZIP code with neighboring East Greenwich. Either way – Potowomut is a lovely place to visit with your dog!

Goddard Memorial State Park has got to be your first outing here. This spectacular 472-acre public open space has spacious, lush grassy areas for picnicking or playing, forest areas with 18 miles of bridle trails for on-lead walks together, and plenty of family-friendly attractions, such as bath-houses, a performing arts centre, an equestrian show area and sports fields. There really is something for everyone here!

If the weather is kind, take a drive up to Sandy Point Beach and Marsh Point on Potowomut Neck. There are always lots of birds to see and views out into Greenwich Bay are photo-worthy. You will need to keep your pup on a lead here and make sure you clean up after him, but he will love exploring the beaches with you.

While there aren’t any vets in Potowomut itself, there is one very closeby on the other side of Greenwich cove in East Greenwich.

So, get out and explore – you and your dog will love visiting this quaint little town.

    #1 Northeast East Greenwich

    Scalloptown Park is on the southwestern edge of Greenwich Cove and is a very popular spot for dog owners to bring their beloved four-legged friends for a day out. Lots of local wildlife call this place home, and there are always lots of birds to spot, such as geese, swans, ospreys and egrets. For this reason, it is advisable to keep your dog on a lead while you enjoy a walk here together. Afterwards, head to one of the many pet-friendly restaurants in the area and take a seat at one of the outside tables with your pup. La Masseria is the place to go for authentic Italian cuisine, whereas Dante’s Kitchen serves up more modern American dishes. Red Stripe has a more traditional American-style feel, or there is also Twisted Pizza, Fat Belly’s Pub and Besos Kitchen and Cocktails. For fresh seafood, try Finn’s Harborside, Nautica or BLU on the Water.

    #2 Davidsville/ Keifer Park

    For a good walk with your dog, head to nearby North Kingston and park at the bike path parking lot. From here you can take a pleasant walk along the paved, easy trail up to Calf Pasture Beach. This is a popular spot for fishing and clamming in season and a lovely piece of nature to spend some time at. To head back to the carpark, take the trail through the forest and fields. The total loop is approximately four miles, so go prepared with plenty of water, food and clean up bags for Fido, as there aren’t any amenities along here. You will also need to keep your pup leashed.

    #3 Warwick City Center

    The Warwick City Dog Park in nearby Warwick is a pup-tastic place to let your canine companion really stretch his legs, socialise with new friends and burn off some energy. Located within the Warwick City Park, the dog park has a section for big dogs and a separate section for the little fellas, as well as trees for shade and benches for you to sit at while your pup plays. There are some waste bags provided, but bring a drinking bowl for your dog and water for you both. The greater Warwick City Park is worth spending some time in while you are here, with over three miles of paved trails for an on-lead walk, picnic areas and shelters, as well as plenty of open space.

    #4 East Greenwich

    Frenchtown Park and Frye Nature Preserve in East Greenwich is a lovely place for an on-lead walk with your dog. Set over 125 acres of forest, wetlands and creeks, this place is the site of the old Tillinghast cotton thread factory from the 1800s. From the parking area, the first trail is the 0.6-mile Cotton Mill Trail, and a connecting trail that takes you a further 0.75 miles through the park. See if you can find the old Tillinghast Mill ruins on your travels. For a further walk, there are more trails north into the Frye Nature Preserve. There aren’t any amenities here, so bring your own water and any food you might like to enjoy on your outing. Always clean up after your dog to keep the preserve tidy for future visitors.

    #5 Northeast North Kingston

    For some sun, sand and surf, head to North Kingston’s Compass Rose Beach, the old sea-plane beach at Quonset Point. Pets are welcome here on leash for a lovely walk, to relax under an umbrella or take a cool dip in the ocean on a calm day with you. The beach is adjacent to an airport, so there are always interesting planes coming in and out to spot, and it is also a popular harbour for fishing boats and the port for the Martha’s Vineyard Ferry too. Picnic areas are provided here, so pack yourself some lunch, water and a drinking bowl for pup for a lovely day out.
