  • If you view this as a nice urban green space with a few trails and sculptures, its worth a short visit. It is truly tiny compared to other national park sites. The visitor center has a couple of...

  • Nice park. It's a nice place to go to relax and read a book, maybe about Roger Williams. There are waysides around the park they tell about his life. He's story is interesting. Check out the National Park website about him for more information. I found him very interesting.
  • Nice informational park. Free parking on site is a plus. Be sure to also check out Prospect Park (called Prospect Terrace on Google) which is the final resting place of Roger Williams and contains a statute of him.
  • super rad exhibit quick walk around so definitely recommend coming with some food as it’s more of a spot rather than park we did ask for a junior park ranger booklet so if you want to learn more about providence and the united states in general definitely ask for it at the info desk ! only downside is do not have very accessible hours.
  • There is a nice visitors center that provides historical details about Providence and Roger Williams. There is a green space park right outside the visitors center with ample benches and picnin tables.
  • Wonderful 15 minute history lesson about the origin of separation of church and state, if you are in Providence, why not? Free parking onsite.
