This is a small but beautiful city park with a great view of the State House. When we went for Mother's day there were some other families there picnicking and all the trees were in bloom. I hesitate to mention this place, since it is not crowded and certainly want it to stay that way. One of my favorite places... More

Relaxing park, excellent view of downtown Providence, and a bigger-than-life statue of Roger Williams.

Every picture of Providence should begin with the view of the city from this park. First, it's free, and that is always a great price to pay for access to a well kept park in a decent section of town with a view. Second, the view. Given that is on top of a hill and Providence is at the bottom... More

A small park with a large statue of Roger Williams (see my review of Roger Williams Park) you can get an unparalleled view of the entire city of Providence, with an unobstructed view of the State House (see my review). Don't go over the retaining fence, as you will never stop rolling, so steep is college hill, so-called for it's... More

I'm not fully aware of the area but I'm assuming this refers to the park on Congdon Street in Providence, RI. It's a very tiny park(well it has to be to fit in Rhode Island, right?) but the view of the city is incredible. The lights are gorgeous and I plan to return to take more pictures of them. It's...

Try and time your visit just before sunset. In the summer, the leaves block the view. As the leaves drop the view emerges more fully. The weather is not as nice, but the view gets better and the temps get colder.

There isn't really anything to do here in this little park spot, but it gives you a great view overlooking downtown Providence. Safe place to walk at night. Not well lit, but never a problem. Parking on street is usually easy to come by.

My wife and I walked hear while touring Benefit Street in order to see the nice view of Providence. While you can't touch the statue as it is surrounded by a fence you have nice photo opportunities and can see the entire Providence downtown with a nice view of the State House from a distance. This location is quite hilly... More

A hike up the steep Congdon Street is well worth the effort to visit Prospect Terrace. It's a small but tranquil park that offers stunning views of downtown Providence. The park is usually dotted with people walking their dogs and students from Brown and RISD. It's best to visit at twilight when you can see the city cast in a... More

Family place. Nice view, well preserved, calm and nature. Nice place to a romantic walk. Also for a family picnic or dog walk.
