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.

Some of Roger William's ashes are here at this monument and there isn't a more fitting place for him to keep watch over Providence. View is stunning. Park is very tiny but well kept. Shaded enough for a picnic on the grass or benches for a relaxing chat. While I was there, several people were doing yoga overlooking the view.

The statue of the founding father of Rhode Island could not have been better placed. In a peaceful surrounding, Roger Williams overlooks a majestic view of the city, unknown to even by most Rhode Islanders. Worth the visit, as it is a romantic place to sit, talk, and daydream.

It's conveniently located near Benefit St and not far from RISD. Small park, but nice view of downtown Providence. A walk up the hill from Benefit St, but you can continue the walk up the hill to Brown University.

Roger Williams, the founder of the first non-religious state in the world, towers of the park. It's a grand place to sit and relax with Providence spread out at your feet.
