Beach Opening

Department of Health (HEALTH) officials recommended re-opening Goddard Memorial State Park in Warwick for swimming. This recommendation is based on results from water samples that show bacteria levels within acceptable limits.

The following licensed beaches remain closed to swimming: Conimicut Point Beach in Warwick and Oakland Beach in Warwick. HEALTH officials will continue to monitor the water quality and recommend re-opening when the area is safe for swimming.

Please note: Beach status may change on a daily basis. For up to date information about swimming at Rhode Island beaches, call (401) 222-2751.
