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.

Nice residential district. This is a small park that offers an enormous view of the city.Not much to the park but a few benches but it's worth the drive (or the climb) for the view.

For sure a must. This place is beautiful day and night. It's beautiful for sight seeing and just relaxing. I was lucky enough to see a shooting star here and a cute little bunny haha! This place for sure holds a place in my heart.

This park overlooks the city of Providence. The statue of Roger Williams has him looking at his beloved city. His bones are buried in a tomb beneath the statue. It's a lovely small park on a quiet East Side Street. A great place to throw a blanket and watch the sun set. Fab view of the State House.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good lookout/vista but I feel like this one was a bit overrated. It's not a sweeping view of the city. It's more like a few pockets of city-line between the trees. I suggest it to be a quick stop on the way to somewhere. Not a destination. There are much nicer parks in... More
