A beautiful state park with 89 acres for public recreation.

The Brenton Point State Park sits on the former grounds of a grand estate in Newport. The views are extraordinary as it is located out on a point of land where Narragansett Bay meets the Atlantic with 3 sides of ocean views. William Brenton was born in about 1600, and he was an American Colonial Official that was very involved in the settlement of Rhode Island and Newport. Brenton was the Governor and Deputy Governor for 8 years. He died at the age of 74 in the year 1674. His home was the Hammersmith Farm in Newport. The United States Army used the estate as a Coastal Artillery Battery from 1941 to 1946. In 1969, the State of Rhode Island took over the property and it was opened to the public in 1976 with gardens, parking, clean restrooms, and many trails. There are picnic tables, a Portuguese sculpture for the Portuguese Landing, and an old lookout tower. The Brenton Point State Park has 89 acres and steady winds, so it is a popular spot for kites and visitors will see simple kites up to professional kites with kite sales nearby if you need such. Because of the great breezes, kite festivals are held there. It is a beautiful area for photos and sailboat watching. Lots of food trucks stop at the park and visitors can even rent a kite or a bike to explore the trails.
