Pretty cool public area located around downtown. Great for walks down the river, or just going to sit on a bench and spending some time outside. Love their WaterFire exhibition. If you're around for that - it's definitely worth staying and checking it out. Feeling the warmth of the fire, in the cool night air, is a pretty exciting and special experience.

This park is a hidden gem within the city of Providence! It's a beautiful little place nestled between the water and the freeway. Access to it is limited to Gano street from the north or the direct India/fox point exit from the freeway. However it has the wonderful East side bike path start, and it has a large grass area for soccer as well as a kids play area. There's places to fish, access to the water, as well as sailing! The park is a wonderful place for a walk & a short exercise run.

A very inspiring and beautiful view of downtown Providence and the capital building that feels a bit like a Parisian park. Great tree cover makes for a great picknic spot. The views even draw artists and classes from the nearby schools. Great place for some good photos of Providence as well.
