The public is invited to drop by the Dalrymple Boathouse at Roger Williams Park (see map) to review design concepts and offer feedback for the new Roger Williams Park Gateway to be constructed at the Broad Street entrance to the Park. Drop-in hours are Monday, October 28 to Friday, November 1 from 1:00-4:00 PM, with extended hours Wednesday, October 30 until 6:00 PM. Unable to attend? View and comment on design options HERE.
The Gateway is a project of the Providence Redevelopment Agency (PRA), the Department of Planning and Development, and the Providence Parks Department and is funded, in part, from a grant from Rhode Island Housing, through the Acquisition and Revitalization Program. The PRA issued an Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for design teams interested in the project. Twelve highly-qualified teams from the region and beyond responded and 5 have been shortlisted to develop design ideas for the facility. A winning team will be selected at the November 7 PRA Board meeting.
