Soak in the views of Narragansett Bay at this Rhode Island state park.

Brenton Point State Park is situated on the grounds of a former historic estate in Newport, Rhode Island. All visitors can enjoy extraordinary views from all sides. This park is the place where Narragansett Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. William Brenton was born in about 1600, and he was an American Colonial Official who played a role in settling Rhode Island and Newport. Brenton was the Governor and Deputy Governor for eight years, and he passed away at the age of 74 in 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, Rhode Island took over the property, and it has been open to the public since 1976. Along with taking in the ocean views, many people enjoy picnicking, bird watching, and fishing at Brenton Point. You can also see a Portuguese sculpture and an old lookout tower during your visit. Brenton Point State Park encompasses 89 acres, and it is a popular spot for kite flying due to the prevailing winds. Be sure to look into attending one of their kite festivals if you get the chance. Enjoy all that Rhode Island has to offer at this coastal state park.
