Riverwalk Restoration Project

  • Providence, RI, 02903 United States (map)

In 2017, over 200 DNA volunteers, along with the Providence Parks Department, helped to transform over a mile of our Riverwalk (from the Hurricane Barrier to the gondola docks in Waterplace Park) by replacing all of the broken/missing cables, and by sanding and painting over 400 railing pillars, light poles, and benches. The transformation has been incredible and to date, we have saved the City of Providence an estimated $250,000 in labor costs! 

Our next Riverwalk project is on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 5:30-8:00pm. We will once again team up with our friends at the Providence Parks Dept. to remove stickers, paint railings, benches, and lamp posts and pick-up trash along our waterways. We will also "inventory" crime and safety related issues as we find them and report them into PVD311. We will meet in front of Quay Restaurant at 200 Exchange St. (at the water's edge)

We have ambitious plans for the entire spring/summer/ we hope to see you all out there having some fun, supporting our efforts and lending a hand! Please register at so that we can plan our supplies. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
