Interested in improving your neighborhood park? The newly formed Partnership for Providence Parks is an amazing city-wide public/private non-profit geared toward helping the people and community partners

help our parks be active, vibrant, healthy, playful and unique places. Being involved in making your local park a better place for all ages is also a great way to keep your kids engaged in the spaces they play in. Everyone wins.
