In January 2015, the Town of Portsmouth and the Aquidneck Land Trust partnered together to purchase a scenic waterfront property which the town plans to develop into Mount Hope Park. This unique property is located at the intersection of Bayview Avenue and Bristol Ferry Road, and juts out into Mount Hope Bay, thereby providing visitors with amazing views of the Mt. Hope Bridge and bay.
The Horsley Witten Project Team produced the Mount Hope Park Master Plan November 27, 2017 for the Town of Portsmouth and the Aquidneck Land Trust. The plan was completed with extensive input of the Mount Hope Park Steering Committee and the community as well as the recommendations of the Horsley Witten Project Team based on existing conditions at the site.
