Little Creek Preserve is now open to the public, and we invite you to visit! Walk the new 1/2-mile nature trail and enjoy the abundant wildlife on this 15.28-acre property. There is a small parking lot on Bramans Lane (across from Malee Terrace), or visitors may park at other Sakonnet Greenway Trail parking areas and hike in to the new Little Creek loop.
