SNAKE DEN STATE PARK
Snake Den State Park is located along Route 6 in Johnston, Rhode Island. The 1000 acre undeveloped property boasts self-guided walking trails, beautiful trees, flowers, plants, and working farm as well. The foliage is something to behold in the fall. Snake Den is accessible at a small parking lot past Dame Farm on the right hand side, which is located on Brown Avenue in Johnston.
The State is currently working on drafting a new master plan of development for this park and hopes to begin some initial development in the next couple of years. One of the principal objectives of this park will be to maintain Dame Farm as an existing working farm so as to preserve a portion of Rhode Island?s rich but diminishing agricultural heritage.
