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.

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
