Waterplace Park's information
The landscaped cobblestone paths of the Riverwalk lead along the Woonasquatucket River to Waterplace Park’s central pool and fountain, overlooked by a stepped amphitheater where outdoor artists perform in warm weather. Take a look at the historical maps and photos mounted on the walls of the walkway beneath Memorial Blvd. Waterplace Park also serves as a nucleus for WaterFire, a summer festival. Another park, a great spot from which to get an overview of the city, is Prospect Terrace Park , a small pocket of green space off Congdon St on the East Side. In warm weather, you’ll find students throwing Frisbees, office workers picnicking and, if you arrive at the transitional point between day and the arrival of night, sunsets. The monumental statue facing the city is that of Providence founder Roger Williams, whose remains were moved to this site in 1939.
