Roger William's Park is a great place to go and visit for couples, family. Pretty grounds with a pond that you can rent paddle boats to paddle around . Plenty of places to walk, sit and relax, picnic. Pretty at Fall Foliage time with the trees changing color

This is a really nice park for walking and taking a stroll, very pretty and has quite an extensive territory to walk around.

This is an extremely Fun tour to see. Bring family and friends for this amazing fall tradition: over 5,000 illuminated jack-o-lanterns along a beautiful Wetlands Trail,Numerous pumpkins carved into works of art. The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular is open rain or shine. Recommend going mid week if possible to avoid crowds.

My wife and I drove here from our hotel in Warwick. The park was not too difficult to find but it was more difficult to find our way around within the park. Once we finally found a place to park, we did enjoy walking around. We were sad to see so much garbage floating around the Japanese garden.

We went there with our 2 nieces. Lots for them to do and safe too. Enjoyable day out, with facilities too.

We stopped here after leaving the central city area on the way back to our hotel. Very large park with nice open expanses. Worth a relaxing stop.

I took the kids to Roger Williams Park one afternoon while we were in Providence and my husband was in training for business. It was not hard to find the park itself but once in the park I found it interesting to navigate. The signage is not fantastic and I missed the playground we were looking for once and had... More

Best time to go is in the fall when the leaves are changing. Amazing colors? Pack a picnic lunch and sit at a park bench or picnic table and enjoy the views and quiet.
