Blackstone Parks Conservancy

On Sunday, June 4, 2:00-4:00, the Blackstone Parks Conservancy invites you to the opening of RiverWood, a new space in Blackstone Park dedicated to children and families. We have been gently adapting a small, natural clearing into a space where children and their families can enjoy being in the woods for imaginative play, programs, and storytelling.  Just a few steps into the woods from Blackstone Field, directly across from Narragansett Boat Club, RiverWood has a special spirit all its own.  

Our Opening Celebration will be held in Blackstone Field and RiverWood.  We’ll have live music with Jennifer Romanat-Haven, and kids will have their choice of activities– building a stick fence, covering a wetu, making a nature craft, playing field games, face painting, listening to stories hosted by Books on the Square, and joining a drumming circle led by Luiz Arias from the RI Philharmonic Music School.  It’s a party! Don’t miss the opening celebration of RiverWood.

At Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Dr. aka River Rd., Providence, RI 02906).
