Event description

Description

In 2018, over 200 DNA volunteers, along with the Providence Parks Department, continued to transform over a mile of our Riverwalk (from the Hurricane Barrier to the basin of 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 $300,000 in labor costs, alone!

Our first Riverwalk project of 2019 will be our Earth Day clean up, Saturday, April 27, from 9am-1pm. 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 the basin and/or towards the Hurricane Barrier. We will gather at Memorial Park and organize our groups there.

Once again, we have ambitious plans for this Earth Day and the entire spring/summer/fall...so we hope to see you all out there having some fun, supporting our efforts and lending a hand! Thank you and we hope to see you there!
