Volunteer for the Color Run 

We need you to help out at the  Color Run. It is the most fun you will ever have volunteering….and for every volunteer that helps out for 4 or more hours during the weekend of October 3-5th, we get a nice chunk of change to continue and expand our work with our awesome community partners… activating and revitalizing Providence Parks through art, play, conservation, community gardens, fitness and more! Please join us and bring a friend. Sign up here!

The Partnership for Providence Parks, along with the Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy and Providence Parks Department, was thrilled to bring visual artist Nina Bovasso to the annual City Tree Lighting festivities at The Providence Rink at the Bank of America City Center on Saturday December 7.


The Partnership for Providence Parks is a new initiative of the Providence Department of Parks and Recreation to support volunteer groups (Friends) who seek to improve their communities by investing in their neighborhood parks. The Partnership is comprised of these Friends groups, local businesses, universities, community organizations and the Providence Department of Parks and Recreation. Ultimately, we want to help each group grow their ability to help their park and also become part of a larger network that can pool resources, share best practices and create phenomenal parks throughout the city.

If you, your organization, or business is interested in volunteering in a Providence Park, please email us here.
