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

I have stopped here when coming down from the north but avoiding a crammed Thayer St or Hope, to the Brown campus when I researched there, or to my daughter's prep school or their jobs.
