Located on Wellington Street, just a block or two off Lower Thames Street is a small park with a small beach. Lots of local kids come here as it is far from the crowds of Newport Summers, has clean restrooms, and plenty of open space to picnic, sunbathe, or just chill. King Park is a Newport City park at the... More

It's a great place to escape the rush of town. It is not a big park but worth visiting to relax and enjoy a picnic. Beautiful view of the bridge and harbour. What are you waiting for?

I stopped at king Park for a walk and to look for a geocache. It's a great place to walk with a nice view of the waterfront. This is a great place to spend some time in the sun.

On a nice day you can picnic in the park and enjoy the beautiful views of the harbor. There is free parking and in Newport that's amazing.

This was a great place to walk from the busier parts of Newport. Only a few minutes away. It was a quiet walk with a wonderful view of the harbor and plenty of benches to sit peacefully on together. Great place to watch the sunset, and we got to catch a local little league game.
