There are many wonderful, free resources for you to access. It is summer —let’s celebrate and safely connect with nature in our city.
Outdoor activities can be done in your backyard, your neighborhood and Providence Parks. You can create your own nature journal and share your discoveries and experiences with us by tagging #PVDParksExplorer. Click here to find a Providence Park near you.

Residents are urged to continue wearing face coverings in all public spaces in addition to limiting gatherings to 15 people or less and to follow social distancing practices. Do not visit parks, trails or other recreational areas if you have a fever, feel ill or are exhibiting symptoms of illness. Please follow CDC’s guidance for personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails. Wash your hands, carry hand sanitizer, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and avoid surfaces that are touched often, such as doorknobs, handrails, and equipment. Please do not leave any traces of your visit. Leave only footprints, take only pictures. While on trails, warn other users of your presence and as they pass, and step aside to let others pass.
