Playful Neighbor-Powered Parks
WIth 93 parks in the City of Providence, the Partnership for Providence Parks cultivates strong relationships between these parks and their surrounding neighborhoods. Through partnerships with city offices, community organizations, and community members, the Partnership for Providence Parks makes these parks the epicenter of community activity through PlayCorps, concerts, and other festivities. Ensuring that both children and adults feel happy and safe in their neighborhood park gives the Providence community an abundance of places to get together and have a good time.
Wendy Nilson, the executive director and founder of the Partnership for Providence Parks, shares how Providence residents are reclaiming their outdoor spaces.
