Riverwalk & Waterplace Park
Memorial Blvd., Steeple and Exchange Sts.
Once covered by the “world’s widest bridge,” the Providence River downtown is now enlivened by year-round public art and cultural events – including the famed WaterFire installation.
Plenty of nearby parking makes this place a starting point for people to circulate through downtown Providence while linking the affluent neighborhood of East Side Providence with downtown and creating a plaza. Walkers on the paths, bikers, joggers, artists sketching the city all can be seen here daily.
