Order lunch “to go” from the Smithfield Ice Cream Parlor, Smithfield Gourmet Bakery & Cafe, or the Taste of Smithfield, then head to Windsor Castle Park for a stroll along 3.8 miles of walking trails alongside Cypress Creek. You might see river otters, herons, osprey and “Princess” the park cat who will greet you with a friendly “Meow.”
This site is the birthplace of Smithfield, incorporated in 1637 by Arthur Smith who farmed the property and whose ancestors built the Manor House (still located on the site). Wander the beautiful trails, enjoy the scenic overlooks, the antique barns, the orchard and a newly planted vineyard, then have lunch in the picnic area and enjoy the fresh air, and the peaceful natural surroundings.
If you want to get even closer to nature, kayak and paddleboard rentals are available seasonally at the park's state-of-the-art launch.
Free Guided Tours of Windsor Castle Park are held throughout the year, weather permitting. Call the Isle of Wight Museum for details at (757) 356-1223.
