Prospect Terrace Park
Prospect Park offers one of the best views available of downtown Providence from its lofty perch atop College Hill on Providence's East Side. From here you can see downtown hotels and other skyscrapers, the State House, and the splendid renovations and river relocation that have made downtown so attractive now. There is also a statue of religious freedom advocate Roger Williams in the park, who essentially founded Rhode Island for white Europeans more than 300 years ago. This is a worthwhile stop, very close to shopping and eateries on Thayer Street.
Prospect Park is a beautiful place. I recommend it to anyone visiting Providence, or anyone who lives in Providence and hasn't already gone. The view is amazing, and the trees and grass are so green and vibrant. It's a nice place to just sit and think, or hang out with your friends.
This spot doesn't offer much else but it's view, that however is spectacular enough in itself. This may be the best spot in providence to get a view of all the lights and sites the city has to offer including the state house. Awesome at night, especially sunset!!
