“Battery Park is beautiful”
Review of Battery Park

Battery Park
Ranked #35 of 81 things to do in Newport
Attraction details
Reviewed October 4, 2016

Battery Park offers expansive, beautiful water views. You can see the boats in the distance. You can kayak right off the beach or sunbathe or go into the water. There is plenty of room. It's like a small flat park. It's a nice place for a picnic lunch and off the beaten path of tourists.

I love to go there to sit and read, enjoy watching the boats sail by topped off by the most amazing sunsets in the world. There is no better way to end your day.

Each year we visit Newport we stop at Battery Park for a nice bottle of wine on a blanket. It isn't the largest park near Newport but it is somewhat secluded and is right on the water. Watch as the boats sail under the bridge leading into Newport.

Even in July, a busy tourist month, this area is so peaceful, and relaxing, with the deep blue bay to gaze at.
