It's a great place to escape the rush of town. It is not a big park but worth visiting to relax and enjoy a picnic. Beautiful view of the bridge and harbour. What are you waiting for?

I stopped at king Park for a walk and to look for a geocache. It's a great place to walk with a nice view of the waterfront. This is a great place to spend some time in the sun.

On a nice day you can picnic in the park and enjoy the beautiful views of the harbor. There is free parking and in Newport that's amazing.
