Slater Park is a beautiful place with many varieties of trees, beautiful flowers, lots of waterways including a lovely pond complete with water lilies and swans. There are many paths and several outdoor gazebo type buildings. One of my favorite items in the park is the old carousel, housed in a delightful building. This is a great place for picnics.... More

Slater park is a wonderful park with about 6 miles of paved bike trails. My family stayed in Pawtucket when we bought a house primarily for our kids but if this park wasn't here I doubt we would have chosen Pawtucket as a permanent residence. It's always clean and if you love to take pictures or paint the nature here... More

Slater park used to be a small zoo but due to budget problems it was closed and runs now as a regular scenic park. Great place to play ball or just have a family picnic.

I love to go walking in Slater park. I particularly like to walk around the pond, visit the dog park and walk down the bike trail. People are friendly and will say hello when walking around. There's a nice outdoor restaurant called Len's that I stop by on occasion as well.

Very nice park for family, sports and relaxation. The farm animals are a special treat for little ones and there are toys for little kids to share. Kids can run free and express themselves. The children's playground is great for different aged kids. They seem to all get along and accept newcomers.

There's lots of space to roam here, on bikes or on foot. You can go in circles on the carousel or watch your dog race around in the dog run.

My daughter and I came to this park when we moved from Dover, NH to Seekonk, MA. It's a nice place for kids to ride their bicycles and a good walk for moms around the pond. There is a nice carousel that opens on weekends from Spring to Fall. I am not sure if it's open in the winter. Car... More

We went to ride the carousel today. It was awesome and my two boys loved it! The rides were 50 cents and we rode three times! The carousel dors move fast but it was great to see the smiles on my kid's face!

Clean park,great for families or just walking the paths or around the pond. Good place to have parties as they have picnic tables and charcoal grills. The summer has lots of festivals and the carousel opens.
