Aquidneck Land Trust (“ALT”) and the City of Newport, as part of the Newport Open Space Partnership, announce new summer hours for the historic tower in Miantonomi Park as part of the Annual Miantonomi Exploration Days. The tower will be open and free to the public every Sunday from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, beginning June 18 and ending August 27. In addition to the open tower, increased summer programming is planned for the park by the Newport Open Space Partnership (“NOSP”), a collaboration of local non-profits and the City, which has been developing an Open Space Master Plan for Newport’s parks and open spaces. Miantonomi Park is the largest park in Newport and features walking trails, wildlife and several historic sites. It was conserved by ALT in 2005.
Miantonomi Park is located on Hillside Avenue in Newport. Enter the park on the Hillside Avenue side and follow the signs to the Tower. No reservation required.
