  • After spending a few hours on crowded Thames Street, Ballard Park was a welcome relief. A nice, quiet walk cleared our heads and we headed off to the beautiful Gooseberry Beach!  more »
  • My boyfriend and I took a trip to Newport, and actually found Ballard Park on Tripadvisor. It was such a gorgeous place to walk around! There was a bunny trail with tons of wild bunnies hopping around...  more »

  • This beautiful park is just a few minutes away from downtown and it's 100% worth talking a walk through! There is enough land/woods that you feel far away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. I parked across the street at the school since it was a weekend and I'm not sure where else to park since it looks very limited on the road. I really like the area where it opens up to a clearing and there is a huge rock/cliff. I was able to climb the cliff without any issue but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because it was pretty risky(albeit extremely satisfying).
  • This place is the most tranquil place you can go in Newport next to the library. It has cleared trails & beautiful scenery. There are other places to relax but this place has few tourist that visit it. If you like the outdoors & perhaps bird watching then this place is for you. Also for your convenience it has a port o john.
