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.

There is a lovely little park with a great view of Providence. You can see many great buildings of the city from up here. Enjoy!

You'll probably need to walk up hill to reach this park but it is worth it. Beautiful views of the city (nice place to view the sun set) and beautiful houses along this street.

It takes some energy do get there from DDC. You walk uphill all the way. Once you get there you don't face the statue. I think the views of the city are much better during winter, since there is no much leaves on trees obstructing the views.

This was always our favorite park in the city. You have a great overview of the city and the river. It is always a peaceful spot that lets you get your think on.

If you're visiting Providebce, you'll want to stroll to Prodpect Terrace. From there, you can see downtown Providence. It's especially fun to see it at night too.

This is a great small park overlooking Providence. It has some of the best views of the Capitol. Many college kids hang out here between classes.

enough said in the title..okay i have to reach the 100-word minimum so here's another feature of that place: you need to walk uphills a little bit from city center/brown university, and sometimes the trees are blocking the views

There may not seem to be much to this small park on the side of a residential street, but enter it -- for the view. There's a big statue of Rhode Island founder Roger Williams looking out over the city. You can look out over it, too. Great views and photo ops.

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!

Thank Tracy P
