This 1869 park up on a hill is popular for the views it gives over downtown Providence. It’s pretty and it’s clean. It doesn’t have much of a history… but it does have the monument to and remains of the founder of the city theologian Roger Williams. The 15-foot tall granite statue was sculpted by Ralph Thomas Walker in the 1930s and depicts the founder gazing over the city. Directly below the statue’s feet is the tomb of the man himself, moved to here in 1939. The park is of greatest delight to photographers, for whether at bright noon or at twilight, the cityscapes from this park are consistently pretty. Sunset at this park is magical.

Prospect Terrace Reviews & Ratings
My absolute favorite park in providence, amazing views, great for dogs and picnics. Very good date spot as well. Tours done here often. Overall a must see park of providence!!!
This small dog park as well as person park overlooks downtown Providence. I might suggest going there when the leaves are mostly off the trees which will forward you a better view of the city. But it seems to me there are a lot of people walking their dogs were very polite and reading books there.
I hope you had your morning Wheaties if you do decide to walk here. It was a steep uphill climb. However, it was a nice exercise and worth it in order to enjoy this small quaint park. The views of the city are amazing especially on a clear sunny day. Definitely check this park out.
Perfect place for photos, picnics and just hanging out. Bring a blanket or lounge on one of the old school benches. The new renovations and walkway additions are wonderful as well!
A beautiful park, if you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet I would :) nice for taking pictures at night or even just relaxing. It’s a nice peaceful park full of life and beautiful views!
