Fodor's Review

This 4½-acre park dedicated to Rhode Island's founder has a symbolic well to mark the site of the spring around which Roger Williams built Providence's original settlement in 1636. A visitor center has a five-minute film about the park's namesake. A demonstration garden shows how Native Americans cultivated corn, beans, and squash, and how English colonists grew herbs. The park has several picnic tables and 20 free parking spaces (a two-hour limit is strictly enforced).
