The Taunton River and its tributaries offer outstanding recreational opportunities, both on the water and along the shoreline where trails and parks allow for enjoyment of the scenic and natural beauty of the river. Access to and awareness of these resources and opportunities is still relatively limited and is a major focus of the Taunton River Stewardship Plan.

CItizens throughout the watershed take pride in this resource. It is where they go for an afternoon of hiking, bird watching, or canoeing, to show off their towns to visitin guests, for family picnics and outings, and simply to "get away from it all".
