The Partnership for Providence Parks is an initiative of the Providence Department of Parks + 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 + 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.
