Great view of downtown Providence!

If you're visiting Providebce, you'll want to stroll to Prodpect Terrace. From there, you can see downtown Providence. It's especially fun to see it at night too.

This is a great small park overlooking Providence. It has some of the best views of the Capitol. Many college kids hang out here between classes.

enough said in the title..okay i have to reach the 100-word minimum so here's another feature of that place: you need to walk uphills a little bit from city center/brown university, and sometimes the trees are blocking the views

There may not seem to be much to this small park on the side of a residential street, but enter it -- for the view. There's a big statue of Rhode Island founder Roger Williams looking out over the city. You can look out over it, too. Great views and photo ops.

This is a great park to stop by and look out at Providence. The views were surprising breath taking! It is centered in a small neighborhood and everyone seems very friendly!!! It is also pet friendly too!

Geez, i wish I had a nice little neighborhood park with a great scenic view of the city and a kind of weird statue of the city founder/religious rebel near my house. Very nice old neighborhood heading up to the top of the hill where Brown University is. Some dog walkers and students from Rhode island School of Design drawing.... More

We drove up to this place and there was not much to see. Great view of the city though. Don't make a special trip but check it out if you're in the area.

Great view, smaller sized park but you can spread out enough. Lots of people seem to being their dogs through here so that makes for great entertainment. Best view of the city. Kind of littered with misc trash.

Disappointed by the view at the top after walking up the hill from the city in 30+ degree heat. A lot of the view is obscured by overgrown trees and there was a lot of rubbish and old food containers strewn about the place.
