Blackstone Park on Seekonk River- Providence


Blackstone Park, located between Angel St. and the grounds of Butler hospital, lies on land donated to the city by Moses Brown Jenkins in the 1860s. It is some of the hilliest land in Providence, and thus unsuitable for residential development. The park itself is little developed, nevertheless, Blackstone Park draws a steady stream of visitors who enjoy isolation and solitude.
