I found this place while on a run on College Hill, and came back to watch a sunset with my girlfriend. It might be the best view of Providence that you can find. It's a nice place to share a quiet moment with good scenery,...More

Nice green space in historic College Hill overlooking the city. It has a huge statue of Roger Williams and great views of the city skyline. Good place for a sunset picnic or a rest under a tree after exploring the hill.

Steep climb from the river. Relatively small, and did not offer very good views of the city below. The only statue faces out from the park.

Thought I’d get to see panoramic view of providence but the view is obscured by trees and cranes and what not. It’s a small park. Better to drive up there and park nearby, otherwise it’s a small uphill walk, prob not really worth it. Overall...More
