More About Ballard Park
Ballard Park is Newport's only nature preserve. Located near Hazard and Wickham roads, near Rogers High School, this space spans nearly 13 acres and has been designated for conservation, education and passive recreation.
The park was a gift to the city in 1990 by Carol C. Ballard. Diverse in wildlife and foliage, Ballard Park is frequently the location for community events. The non-profit Friends of Ballard Park actively works to protect the space.
