I phoned the Norman Bird Sanctuary on April 9, 2019 as I had found an injured Seagull that could not fly. It was alert in every way. I asked them to give me directions to their address as I wanted to bring the Seagull there. Oh no, we DON'T TAKE INJURED BIRDS. Excuse Me? I thought this was a sanctuary. That is not my idea of a sanctuary. Disgraceful.Thankfully I found the name of the REHABILATATORS BIRD SANCTUARY AT 2865 Tower Hill Road, S. Kingstown, R.I. They immediately took the Seagull and said it should be well in time. That is what you call a Sanctuary, NOT the above.

Birds. Grass. Trees. Near the ocean. Tranquil to the max.

Great place for hiking and bird watching with some great views from the cliffs. Have gone twice now. Excellent trails,well marked, through the woods. Easy trails as well as.higher degree of difficulty if you like a little climb. Have seen wide variety of birds as well.


Fantastic afternoon at Norman

Norman Bird Sanctuary always puts a great harvest festival together. This year there was no issues with weather so we didn't have to be bussed from Third Beach. It seemed like the overall atmosphere was focused on fun today. We laughed a lot with friends today. Saw the mud battle today- that was funny (and cold for the participants). Our daughter and her friend both survived the high wire attraction. Thought neither would do it as our daughter couldn't get past the height, but both prevailed with smiles to boot. The bands playing were very good and the food was too. A light of vendors today inside the tent and activities too. Watching everyone get on the stilts was funny. I tried them but couldn't manage 5 feet. The kids participated in the potato sack race and tug of war.

Depending on the crowd this beach can be perfect for family with small children. I like it more than other beaches in the area, because of the clean bathrooms and friendliness of the staff that works there.

Beautiful trails, love to bring my daughter's.

Christie Wilbanks Riley


Great place if you're looking for a quiet walk in the woods. Perhaps the best part is going down to the rocks overlooking the beach and taking in the view.

This is a great place to go hiking. What a view in some spots! I have been here only a couple of times but I would definitely recommend it. I will be back soon with my camera to get some bird shots. We saw a couple of ducks mating and an egret. Even though we didn't see many birds we weren't really looking. We were more interested in getting some miles in and there are plenty of trails here to do that. The whole time you are there you can hear the birds singing. It's a mystical little spot with a lot of history. If you're looking to get away from it all this is the spot. They even have picnic tables so pack a lunch and spend the day.

Norman Bird Sanctuary - Hanging Rock - Hanging Rock is one of the most striking spots in the Sanctuary. Hike up to the summit and you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of Second Beach and the crashing Atlantic . The view is expansive and breath-taking. Hanging Rock was a favorite spot back in the late 1800s when luminaries like William James and John La Farge discussed philosophy in the midst of the surrounding wonder.

Deb Hanson

Awesome place for hiking, exercize, bird watching, photographers, etc. Great for kids & adults alike. Hiking out to Hanging Rock is well worth the hike/climb! The views are spectacular (3rd,2nd beaches, nature preserve,St.George's)!! Don't forget the Harvest Fair in Oct!

This place is amazing. Most of my memories come from walking up to hanging rock or going to the harvest fair with my family. I really enjoy this place, Iv learned a lot about the bird and the eco system around me. Getting to go on a walk here is a treat for me. I can let lose and listen to the sounds for nature and the waves crashing on the nearby beach. I will alwase love this place.

Nicholas LeBlanc

Beautiful seaside nature sanctuary. One of few places left that hasn't been taken over by a skyrise condo!

Justin Morse

I brought my daughter and my wife expecting some simple trails. Instead, we discovered a rocky cliff face that was challenging even for us. The view at the top made it just that mich better.
