RHIX34580 Detail of River


Since the arrival of Roger Williams in 1636, rivers have shaped Providence and have been shaped by the city’s inhabitants. Once forgotten rivers that had been covered by roadways since the 1950s have now been rediscovered and made beautiful once again. This walk shares the history of the Providence River and others, and also tells the story of WaterFire—a dazzling waterfront event since 1996.
