  • Amazing area. Great for kite flying with a vendor on site that sells amazing kites!! We always spend the day here snacking, walking around the mansion, playing near the water. My family loves it here we go every year. Just bring some yard games, music, kites and charcoal and you have a day full of fun and relaxation.
  • Brenton Point Park is located at the tip of the Ocean Drive surrounded by water on three sides. It has an amazing view of the sea and the coast of Newport. The park has picnic and BBQ accommodations and plenty of space for your little ones to run around. If you have some time to kill and want to spend a few hours outside this is a perfect place to visit with your family.
