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

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
