Highlighting Newport

Aquidneck Park

300 Spring Street
Newport, RI 02840

As a part of AARP's 60th Anniversary, AARP launched an ambitious effort in 2019 to create 53 fitness parks – one each in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These AARP Sponsored Outdoor Fitness Parks Organized by FitLot are designed for adaptive use by people with a wide range of abilities and exercise needs.

The grounds of the former Edward King estate make up Aquidneck Park and acts as a campus for the Senior Center, Public Library and Martin Recreation Center. The park includes lighted tennis courts, a playground and a large lawn for play, but is also popular for more passive activities such as sunbathing or reading a book.
