This is a great small park overlooking Providence. It has some of the best views of the Capitol. Many college kids hang out here between classes.

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.

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
