If you like flying kites or just watching them this is a great location. I went there, however, to just sit on the rocks by the ocean and have a picnic. Great spot to just reflect and relax.

I happen to be in Newport the last couple of days and rented a scooter to get out of downtown. I decided to to take a drive along Ocean Avenue and just happened upon the Kite Festival at the state park. It's worth a visit...More

Went here for a picnic as there are plenty of open space with grass. Lots of wind so great for kite flying. Overlooks the ocean so just beautiful.

This is a nice park. The view of the ocean across the street is so enjoyable. It also feels nice when the ocean breeze hits ya.

Great ocean side spot for kite flying and picnics. The park is very well maintained. Close to downtown Newport shops and restaurants. Free parking and no admission fee.

Awesome day at the kite festival! Plenty of kites to see, lots of space to fly your own and set up for a picnic, live band, some concessions, nice rest rooms. Right across from the ocean - beautiful views! Parking for the festival gets tough...More

We stopped and enjoyed about 2 hours of kite! Worth the stop! Nice winds and nice views. You can even bbcue while in the park.

Good place to go to escape the downtown Newport crowd. The ocean view is great, especially for a sunset. I took my family here for a picnic and my daughter flew her first kite here. Loved this place when I was stationed here twenty years...More

This state park on Ocean Drive is worth stopping for. There are benches along the ocean to sit and take in spectacular views. There a vendors offering food, beverages, and kites. There are some monuments that are unusual. There are educational placards explaining their significance....More

We somehow had it in our heads we could rent kites here so brought our excited 4 year old for the morning. Unfortunately kites are only available to buy might be a business opportunity for someone to rent to overseas visitors... Beautiful spot we took...More

Unfortunately No. If you will be in summer and if you can drive scooter rent from Newport downtown is an alternative otherwise uber.
