General Information

Description - This information provided by RI state parks

Occupying the former grounds of one of Newport's grandest estates, Brenton Point State Park affords its visitors one of the most commanding and spectacular views on the East Coast. The park is located at the point of land where Narragansett Bay meets the Atlantic, midway along renowned Ocean Drive. Visitors can enjoy picnicking, hiking, fishing, or just relaxing with the cool breezes and majestic views of the Atlantic.

Attractions - Visitors can enjoy picnicking

Recreation - Visitors can also enjoy fishing, and hiking.

Climate - The large bodies of water surrounding Rhode Island make the climate temperate, although high humidity does exist. Summer highs usually average near 70 degrees F, with a few days, usually in July and August, reaching 90 degrees. Nights along the water can be cool, but usually temperatures remain at a comfortable level near 60 degrees. Winter temperatures average near 30 degrees for daytime highs. Snow is often changed to rain as it reaches the coast and doesn't last long if it does fall to the ground. The wind can be bitter during the winter months so be prepared with a wind breaking jacket.

Location - Directions from Providence : Take interstate Rte. 195, to Rte. 136 South, to Rte. 114 South (West Main Road), to 138 South, to Broadway, to Downtown Newport, follow signs to Ocean Drive.
