Readers' Choice: Best Park in Newport

Tell us your favorite park in Newport.

As the weather gets warmer and the daylight hours extend, it's tempting to want to spend most of your time outdoors. Because really, what's nicer than a picnic or frisbee toss at one of our many local parks, or an afternoon with the kids at one of our playgrounds?

With the official start of spring on Tuesday, we want to know: what's your favorite outdoor space in Newport?

Is it , , , , , , , , , , or ?

Vote in our poll and share your thoughts in the comments section below. If we left your favorite park or playground off the list, note that in the comments as well.

We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the park that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. For full details on our rules, see the attached PDF. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

How about Braga Park?

Only Queen Anne Square is the subject of an 3 Open Meetings Law Complaints, about to become 4, numerous Access to Public Records Act requests, which have turned over 1200 documents, and countless other filings, including a soon to be held April 2nd DEM hearing, all in order to keep it exactly the way it is. If another Park has received that amount of passion, no Ballard - 1 APRA/100 documents - you haven't had your turn yet but that roller coaster ride is soon to begin, please let me know which one it is.
