Blackstone Parks Conservancy

The East Coast River Relay is a 3,000-mile celebration of the nonprofit East Coast Greenway Alliance’s 25th birthday and 50 key rivers along the Greenway, including our Seekonk River. The River Relay encourages participants to walk, bike, and run the Greenway and explore the rivers we connect. We are proud to partner with the East Coast Greenway Alliance for this event as it goes through Providence and Blackstone Parks. Please join us.

Walkers: The walk starts at 3:00 pm at India Point Park Parking Lot, 201 India Street, Providence, RI and ends at 5:00 pm in Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive aka River Road, Providence, RI 02906).

Kayakers: Meet at the Gano Street boat launch, 81-99 East Transit Street, Providence, RI at 3:00 pm. You must bring your own boat.

Bikers: Bike on down to the park at any point to celebrate and stay to enjoy the BBQ.

Walkers and paddlers will finish by 5:00 pm so they can attend a barbeque at Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive aka River Road, Providence, RI 02906).
