Family Fun

When the kids start saying “Are We There Yet?!” let them escape the car, run around and burn off steam in one of the city’s beautiful green spaces.

Video collaboration by Alluring Media Co. and Ethan DeAguiar of 8 Arm Creative.

A good first choice is Kennedy Park in the city’s South End.

There’s an overlook where adults can enjoy water views of the Taunton River, while kids get tangled in the jungle gym. (You can untangle them later if you want.)

Fun Fact:

Fall River has 124 playgrounds and parks (for everyone’s enjoyment)!  One even has a diminutive replica of the Statue of Liberty (Kennedy Park)!

On a hot day, another cool place to visit is Father Travassos Splash Park located on Alden Street in the Flint neighborhood.

It’s a great place to freshen up, and perhaps have a picnic. Forgot to pack a lunch? Here’s a quick eat nearby: Sam’s Bakery – serving savory Lebanese fare.

Then there’s Lafayette Park where ten acres of property await children who want to scream and run around after being cooped up in the car for hours. There’s also a pool for a quick dip, and a great opportunity for the kids to make new Fall River friends.

RAINING?
NO PROBLEM.

The Fall River Children’s Museum on North Main Street has tons of children’s activities for kids 12 and under. We highly recommend exploring the Space Room where children can take a trip to the moon and back!

Expect to spend 30 minutes or more here.

Another fun addition to the ‘to-do’ list is taking a spin on one of the oldest working carousels in the country.

Hop aboard a ‘jumping’ wooden horse, or choose an elaborate grounded carriage bench to enjoy the ride, which is accompanied by a loop of circus music.

Before you leave, grab a scoop (or two!) at the Carousel Creamery, located on the ground level of the building.

People usually spend about 30 minutes here.

For families with teenagers, we suggest a stop at Stumpy’s Hatchet House, where everyone can participate in an axe-throwing adventure. See who can hit the bullseye, play giant Jenga, and more! Whatever the outcome, there’s fun to be had by all.

Call ahead for availability. (And for parents, it’s BYOB). A good 60-minute+ stop.

BY NOW EVERYONE’S PROBABLY HUNGRY.

Thyme Blossom Cafe is a great stop for coffee and sweet treats, or sandwiches, and salads. Rustic in design, this cafe is a great resting spot with a beautiful outdoor seating area.

If you’re looking for a more casual sit-down place, we suggest Al Mac’s Diner, a family-owned local favorite.

Perhaps an hour stay.
