    Does anyone know when the swan boats, carousel, and playground will open? Planning to come in late June.

    1. Kevin Essington says:

      The City has not yet announced a formal re-opening of the swan boats, carousel, or playground in Roger Williams Park. Hopefully we will be able to loosen some of the restrictions in the Park after June 5 but we do not have any details at this time. Stay tuned to the website here where we will provide updates weekly as things change.

    When will we be able to park in the Park? I’m handicapped and require a wheel chair but Ill be damned if um going to park the car on Elmwood Ave and wheel myself in. So when can we drive in and park?

    1. Kevin Essington says:

      Stay tuned, Alison. We hope to have an update this week. Thank you for your patience!

    It was announced again that the parks are open. Paring in Roger Williams is open except from the hill down to Park Avenue entrance. Why is this?

    1. Kevin Essington says:

      The Mayor has decided to keep the City’s parks at half capacity. So, you may see closings like this persist in parks around Providence. Stay tuned for updates. As they happen we will announce them.
