February 22, 2020 – Fall River Heritage State Park – Massachusetts

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Fall River Heritage State Park in Fall River, Massachusetts.  Fall River Heritage State Park is a historic public park that is located along the Taunton River.  The Park includes:  a large carousel, a visitor center, a boardwalk, and views of the battleships of Battleship Cove – America’s Fleet Museum.  Fall River Heritage State Park is popular for sailing, walking, educational programs, and summer activities.

We had a scenic Adventure to the Fall River Heritage State Park.  Upon arrival, I was immediately awed by the World War II battleships docked at neighboring Battleship Cove.  They were gigantic, and absolutely fascinating.  We immediately wandered toward these ships, but did not enter the actual Battleship Cove, unlikely to be dog friendly.  We explored the minimal grounds finding several propellers, a 9-1-1 Memorial, and various other artifacts.

After wandering around the Battleship Cove grounds we headed toward the Visitor Center.  I almost neglected to locate the carousel as we passed by, closed for the season.  Our entrance began as we traversed a wooden bridge leading us to the doorsteps of the Visitor Center.  We headed up to and around the Center, making sure not to miss sight of the River.  Over to the left were the ships and the impressive Baga Bridge, while to the right the boardwalk resumed.  Our journey continued down the boardwalk, parallel to the River.  Along this boardwalk we passed a small park with benches, and what appeared to be a building for sailing ventures.  We spent about two hours in the Park mostly walking along the boardwalk, while also stopping to take photographs and explore various sites.  Throughout the Park we located small kiosks identifying our location, which eventually ended, leading me to the conclusion that we ventured far past the Park’s border.  We walked and walked until we arrived at a World War II Memorial.  We visited the various statues, and memorials before heading back to the Park.

Throughout our visit to the Heritage River State Park I especially was drawn to the spectacular Battleships, and the scenic boardwalk along the River.  The Park unfortunately was quite dirty, and was scattered with geese poop.  However, we did our best to avoid these unpleasantries, and enjoyed our brisk walk.  As per our usual Adventure, it was filled with cheerful rolls, lots of posing, and enthusiasm for a new Adventure.  I worked on some training with Wilma during today’s Adventure, and was quite proud of her work, a wonderful role model by her side.  It was nice to see the sun out, and a slight increase in temperature for our New England Winter.  Definitely glad we could explore the Fall River Heritage Park today (Rating:  3).
