Casimir Pulaski Memorial State Park
151 Pulaski Road, Chepachet
This 100 acre park offers many outdoor activities for all ages to enjoy throughout the year. In the warmer months, enjoy hiking the trail from the beach (follow the white triangles with blue dots) and then picnicking and swimming in Peck Pond – a great way to cool off! Along the trail, be sure to look for downed trees or stumps with the characteristic chew marks of the beavers that make their home in the pond. In the winter, take advantage of the 10 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails that lead into the adjacent George Washington Management Area.
