Except for the gardens at Roger Williams Park in Providence, most of Rhode Island’s gardens may be found associated with elegant mansions in Newport. These “summer cottages” of the ultra-rich were maintained to impress neighbors and to offer residents a pleasant environment to stroll outside the house. Among the properties with elaborate and impressive gardens is The Elms.
Another beautiful estate with attractive gardens is Rosecliff. The commanding entrance to the mansion is lined with formal flower gardens.
The grounds at Rosecliff also include a lovely succulent display.
