Completed Construction Projects
Relocation of Providence Waterfront & Providence River Park
Two decades ago, downtown Providence’s waterfront, was in need of a major overhaul. After revitalization plans came to light, two rivers (Woonasquatucket and Moshassuck) had been uncovered and rechanneled. Railroad Tracks have been relocated and new parks built. Bridges and walkways have been erected as well. Of the two stretches of waterfront, Waterplace (including the river walks leading into Confluence Park) may be the more satisfying aesthetic achievement. The Woonasquatucket enters its lovely circular pond of granite paths and ornate railings and then emerges into a channel who graceful curvature bends into a backdrop of architectural splendor climbing up College Hill.
