We stopped here for a rest during our walking tour of Newport. Very pretty and clean little park with nice benches for a rest. There were enough trees for some shade as it was a hot day. Very welcome spot.

Touro Park is a nice green space; however, it is best for a leisurely stroll to see the Old Mill on its grounds. There are a few paved walks and a few benches and flowers in the park.
