Royal River Park, Yarmouth

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.
