About the size of a city block, the most informative part is the visitor center. There is a short movie than explains Roger Williams and the founding of Providence.
Roger Williams is sort of the patron saint of Rhode Island and here you can learn about him and his revolutionary ideas. The facility is small. In addition of a few displays a well produced film describes his life and ministry and the creation of the colony that has become the State of Rhode Island.

We stopped only at the Visitor Center so can't comment on the park or walking tour. The Visitor center is small but the agent on duty that Friday morning was very knowledgeable about her subject and articulate and enjoyed talking about the life and philosophy of Roger Williams.
There's a small and very educational visitor center. The NPS employee at the desk was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The memorial itself is mostly a large park with some informational signs. This can be great for kids to get out and run around. Unfortunately, there's nothing physical left from the actual time of Roger Williams.
