This park has a nice view of Providence. A nice place for friends or a couple to walk and talk and perhaps have a picnic. Even someone can jog, etc

The way to this place is not hard to find. The view is beautiful, although it is not that high. In the winter it is easier to see more of the city, because the leaves of the trees block the vision.

I have stopped here when coming down from the north but avoiding a crammed Thayer St or Hope, to the Brown campus when I researched there, or to my daughter's prep school or their jobs.

Lovely, peaceful park.. Great views from high above a super tourist city Close to RISD and Brown. Many benches for taking in the views. Safe for seniors and well lit at night. Enjoy stopping by frequently when in the neighborhood.

A little difficult to locate but once there a photo opp. A quaint little park with grass where some will picnic or just sit to read.

This was part of our tour of the city. Everywhere we stopped and got out of the bus was packed with historical significance. Our tour guide was very informative on the history of this diverse city. I believe this spot looked over a wonderful view of the city.

This park is a little hidden treasure but wow is it a sight! This will let you see a perfect view of Providence from a tall hill. The statue of Roger Williams, the founder of RI, makes the spot even more significant.
