A lesser know version of the Blackstone Boulevard (and slightly shorter), Pleasant Valley Parkway offers a stroll along a combination of paved paths, gravel paths, and some street walking. The linear park wedged between the two roads of Pleasant Valley Parkway runs from behind Roger Williams Hospital to Academy Avenue. A drainage swale/stream runs down the center of the park with a couple pedestrian bridges that cross it. There is also a variety of trees within the park that you would not normally come upon in other spots of the city. The walk out and back is just under a mile and a half.
