West Warwick Riverwalk
Factory Street, Warwick
The northern section of the West Warwick Riverwalk is short, flat, and quite pleasant. Although the floods of 2010 damaged parts of the stroller-friendly path, you can still follow it for 0.5 miles along the south branch of the Pawtuxet River to the Royal Mills Dam Overlook.

Difficulty: easy for kids
Map: none available, but the path is easy to follow
Dogs: are welcome, so long as they are leashed and you clean up after them
Accessible by Public Transportation: within 0.1 mile
You might want to bring: long pants to protect against the poison ivy that lines the path
