Other facilities include Dartmouth Regional Parks and Trails, located at 443 Old Fall River Road. The site includes sports fields and courts, and walking trails.

Day passes will also be available. Round Hill day passes are $15, are only issued to residents, and only valid Mondays-Fridays excluding holidays. Jones Park and Apponagansett Park day passes are $10.

This year, people getting stickers will also get a letter about the clean up efforts at Round Hill Beach after a complaint was received by the board regarding machinery raking at the beach.

With the start of summer approaching, The Bucket at Apponagansett Park also has a set time and date for its opening. The ice cream and food stand located on the property will open at May 26 at noon.
