Royal River Park, Yarmouth


  • Preserve Size: 22 acres
  • Trail Mileage: .6 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: river, fields, park

This is a really pleasant community park, offering a 1-mile paved trail along the river (along with side trails), with panels explaining the site’s historical significance. Picnic tables, playing fields and a summer concert series round out its offerings. Lots of dogs and dog owners take advantage of this refuge, so close to downtown. It is wheelchair accessible.

Directions: The main entrance to the park is across from the Yarmouth Water District offices on East Elm Street, about 0.3 mile east of Andy’s Handy Store at the corner of Main Street. There are additional entrances to the park from Bridge Street, the Beth Condon Pathway near the Rowe Elementary School and via the pedestrian bridge accessed from Forest Falls Drive. Check out the town map in my slideshow.

  1. We are staying in a cottage in Phippsburg & it was nice to find your listings of local walks & hikes. Thanks for your effort. We are from the Youngstown, OH area.

  2. I am so glad you enjoyed your walks in the area and that my website was useful to you (and hopefully it wasn’t too, too slow…am trying to fix that!). I love Phippsburg.

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
