Overview

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 $200,000 in labor costs!

Our next Riverwalk project is on Earth Day, Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 9am-12pm. We will once again team up with our friends at the Providence Parks Dept. to remove stickers, touch-up paint on railings, benches, and lamp posts and pick-up trash along our waterways from South Water Street to Memorial Park. We will gather at the Hurricane Barrier next to the Hot Club and organize our groups there.
