Salt Meadow Park

Salt Meadow Park serves two main purposes; protecting natural resources and providing recreational resources for the public. The recreational resources are easy to see: playing fields for organized sports and pick-up games, a walking path along the site of the old airport runway, hiking trails in the coastal forest, a natural amphitheater overlooking the river, a new pavilion, a picnic area and a kayak launch.



Dogs are allowed in the parking lot and on walking trails only (until completion of the Dog Park in Summer of 2022). Dogs must be on a leash and under the control of handler/owner.
