On Sundays throughout the month of September, the Miantonomi Tower in Miantonomi Park will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. allowing visitors to climb to the highest point on Aquidneck Island.

Beyond enjoying the spectacular view from the tower visitors will get a chance to explore the trails, wildlife and historic sites in Newport’s largest park as part of Miantonomi Exploration Days.

“Miantonomi Exploration Days will be a great way for people to discover the park in a new light while getting a chance to see unparalleled views of the City,” said Scott Wheeler, Buildings and Grounds Supervisor/Tree Warden.

In addition to exploring the park, visitors are encouraged to take their picture while enjoying their day at Miantonomi and sharing to social media using the hashtag ‪#‎nptexplorationdays‬. Those who do share their picture will get the opportunity to be featured on the City of Newport’s Instagram.
