About Scalloptown Park
This small town park at the end of Rocky Hollow Road overlooks Greenwich Bay. The park, though small, offers a just under a mile of walking trails with plenty of benches to sit and view the bay. The park is also popular with locals to bring their dogs. Greenwich Bay once was one of the best shell fishing locations in Rhode Island. Scallops were the main catch here. Therefore this area became known as Scalloptown. Over the years, the area the park sits on became the town landfill. The landfill eventually was capped and the park was built over it. Today it is a nice little spot, lesser known, hidden along the shore of the bay.
