[Edit this travel guide] About This Destination
The history of the town dates back to 1637, when Roger Williams (theologian) established a trading post between two major Native American thoroughfares. In 1674, “Kings Towne” was founded by the colonial government and included several present-day towns. Kings Towne was the center of the King Philip’s War fought from 1675 to 1676. At the start of the 18th century, settlement increased so quickly that in 1722 the colonial government divided Kings Towne into North and South, with North Kingstown being the area of earliest settlement. The seaport and colonial fishing village of Wickford was also established in the early 18th century.

Every night during the summer, this park is bustling with activity and serves a center that the community comes together and holds events like little league barbecues and award ceremonies. The park also has public restrooms, a water fountain, and a concession stand that opens up during baseball and football games.
- Oak Tree Trail, Davisville Elementary School, 50 East Court. This small but quiet stretch of wildlife trails sits behind Daviville's elementary school. It consists of about 7 trails that run through a small patch woods that sits next to some marshy wetlands and Davisville Pond. Featuring a bridge over the pond and a look-out tower that peers of the tree-tops, this quaint set of trails is a great idea for anyone to try on a nice day. However, after dark the trails become crowded due to a lot of younger kids playing man hunt and such, so if you are bringing younger children it's best to go during the day.
- Signal Rock, 300 Signal Rock Drive. This park is another little league hot-spot that is always full of the town's children and parents during the summer.

- North Kingstown Municipal Golf Course, 615 Callahan Rd, +1 401 294-0684. This public 18 hole golf course is not too demanding but offers a challenge from the blue tees to almost any golfer. Rates are reasonable at about $20 for nine holes, but the best deal in town is after 6 for juniors under 18 when its just $5 for all the golf you can play. It has a putting green, restrooms and restaurant right on the course. The landscape is beautiful, with a few holes that overshoot ponds and an amazing view of the bay on the back 9. It sits right next to Quonset Air Base so don't be surprised if during one of your shots a plan takes off or lands. Lots of deer roam the course and if you go at right time of day, you just might see a few. The one drawback of the course is that it was built over a marsh and drains very poorly. If it has rained heavily within 24 hours, there is a good chance the fairways and bunkers will still be wet.
- Rolling Greens Golf Course, 1625 Ten Rod Rd, +1 401 294-9859.  This public 9-hole course and driving range is great for beginner golfers. With the only long hole being number 9, it's a nice course to polish your game or just start playing. Costs range between 28 and 30 dollars. Beware, however, it is a hilly course and you have any back or leg problems, it is a good idea to get a cart. It offers a putting green, women's, intermediate, and pro tee boxes. The rough is not too dense and fairways normally pretty short so scoring low is a possibility. This course drains very well and is good to go to if it has just recently rained and you feel the need to golf.
- Woodland Greens Club, 655 Old Baptist Rd, +1 401 294-2872. This is another 9 hole course but is arguably the most difficult of the three public welcoming courses in North Kingstown. The fairways are pretty narrow but if you hit the ball straight you should be fine. Weekday rates are $21 for 9 and $28 for 18, while the weekend is just a few dollars higher. This course showcases a banquet that holds retirement parties, birthday parties, bridal showers, weddings and tournaments. Opening in 1964, Woodland is semi-private and has around 200 members.
- Quidnessett Country Club, 950 N. Quidnessett Rd. This is a beautiful private golf club that contains 18 difficult holes that will challenge all but the best in the game. Form its inception in 1960, the course has been one of the finest in North Kingstown. It is pretty expensive to join, but if you have a friend that is a member, it would be best to first play as a guest on their half and then think about joining. The rough is tough, the greens are large and the fairways are narrow. But if there is one course in NK to join, this is the one. Well-respected in the community and sporting great consumer reviews, Quidnessett is really a great golf course.
