Riverwalk Restoration Project

  • Providence, RI, 02903 United States (map)

Since 2016, 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 alone! 

Our next Riverwalk project is on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 9:00am to 1:00pm. 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 hope to see you all out there having some fun, supporting our efforts and lending a hand! Please register at HERE so that we can plan our supplies. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
