Amazing Views of Providence From Above

A local recommended this to me and I couldn't be more happy that he did! Fantastic views of the city, even on a foggy day.

Beautiful park with gorgeous views of the city. We walked there all up hill from the Biltmore. It was well worth it if you like to walk. Of course you can drive there too.

This small park with a gigantic statue offers a panorama of downtown Providence and surrounding districts. It is also a good place to watch sunset. It is not a must if you have limited time in Providence, otherwise deserves a short visit.

This shouldn't be your primary destination in Providence, but if you're walking around College Hill, Brown University, Benefit Street, and other nearby attractions, definitely invest the extra five minutes in walking up to this park. It offers a nice view of the city and capitol building. This park faces west and offers BEAUTIFUL views of the sun setting over the... More

I walked up the hill to the park and that was a feat! But it was so worth it! Amazing view of the city! I recommend seeing it from below as well because that's the best view of the statue. This is a must in Providence!

Best views are had in the fall after the leaves have fallen. Beautiful view of the city. Statue of Roger Williams, benches for sitting. Go in the day then again at night.

This was an unexpected treat - as I came here at the recommendation of a friend. What an amazing view of Providence on a wonderful weather day! The park was a wonderful sanctuary from the bustle of downtown and is just a few blocks away from Brown University. A nice place to sit and look out over the city and... More

If you're in the mood for a romantic stroll, or in search a scenic view of Providence, look no further. Located in the scenic Providence College Hill neighborhood, Prospect Terrace (known as Prospect Park) is a great place to start.

This park has a nice view of Providence. A nice place for friends or a couple to walk and talk and perhaps have a picnic. Even someone can jog, etc
