  • We drove on the Ocean Drive and eventually ended up here. It is a nice point and well organized. There is parking here, which you can enter from both ends, so if you miss one entry point, there will be another. You can park here and carefully cross the street to the rocks/cliffs and the ocean.
  • Been coming here all my life. Beautiful, well kept park on the water. Always a good breeze for kites, big open areas for kids and playing, rest rooms available and trails in the woods for hiking.
  • Great wide open space with grills , vendors that sell kites for kids & adults. Large wooded area with trails & abandoned horse stable that pretty cool. Right across the street is the ocean that's perfect for tidal pool expeditions with kids. Fishing is fantastic here!
  • Nice spot on the southern-most point of Newport. Huge parking area if you get there way early. The road is bike friendly. Cool monument. Majestic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. Good walk-abouts also.
  • One of the most beautiful places to look out on the bay and ocean. Windy. Sea mist in the air. I love that you can walk out into the rocks, west water shoes
