Miantonomi Exploration Days
August 13, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until August 28, 2017
The Aquidneck Land Trust, as part of the Newport Open Space Partnership, will open Miantonomi Memorial Tower to the public every Sunday from 11am to 2pm from June 25 to August 27. Come to the highest point in Newport to view the city and Newport Harbor. At 30 acres, Miantonomi is the largest city-owned park in Newport and is conserved permanently through ALT. The site has a rich history and provides large, undisturbed woodlands in the densely developed North End of Newport.
Explore the park’s hiking trails after you climb the tower, and enjoy one of the best spots for birding in Newport! The tower iteself will be open between 11am to 2pm. You may come and go at your leisure to explore the rest of the park. Stop by for 10 minutes to climb the spiral staircase to the top of the tower or hike the trails for an hour! An ALT staff member will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the park.
Miantonomi Park is located on Hillside Ave, between Hillside and Girard Avenues, in Newport. Enter the park on the Hillside Ave side and follow the signs to the Tower.
