Not to be confused with the Roger Williams National Memorial, this unassuming little park is a tribute to the soldiers who perished during World War One. The main sight at the park is the 150-foot high granite memorial designed by architect Paul Cret. It was erected in 1929. There's a statue on top of the memorial that represents the concept of Peace. Look for the quote by Woodrow Wilson at the base of the obelisk. There are two other smaller memorials in the Park, one for World War II and the other for the Korean War. This place is not promoted as a tourist attraction, but it is a lovely place for a stroll, with benches to sit on, and a good view over the river. The best time to visit is sunset.
