Parks and Recreation

In Fall River you will find parks and museums to spend time in.  We have three parks designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted:

Ruggles, North, and Kennedy. For the outdoor adventurer, Copicut Woods offers access to the 13,600-acre Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve, which features trails in one of the largest perpetual tracts of wooded land with traces of historic farms.

Be sure to visit  Battleship Cove, the world’s largest collection of World War II naval vessels. Neighboring is the waterfront Fall River Heritage State Park that is within walking distance to The Marine MuseumFall River Historical Society and the Narrows Center for the Arts, an ideal place to see national and local performing and visual artists. Situated in an old mill building with impressive waterfront views, the Narrows Center features a 430-seat performance area, gallery, cafe and artist studios.
