Hi residents of the Manton area!
My name is Toye, and I’m working with the Partnership for Providence Parks and Friends of Viscolosi Park to survey neighborhood residents about Viscolosi Park. Parks are a vital part of any city. They help residents build a sense of community unique to the neighborhood.
We want to get an idea of how residents use the park so we can better shape it to meet the needs of the community for generations to come. This survey should take at most 15 minutes to complete and the responses we get will possibly shape the future of the park! The survey closes on Thursday, April 17 at 6:00pm.
If you would like to complete the survey, just visit this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1WxKsD60ZeFXH8k092y0WH45-6ZgIpmIQ18zowTqpG-I/viewform
The Partnership for Providence Parks is teaming up with the City of Providence’s Department of Parks and Recreation and Healthy Communities Office and Providence Children’s Museum for an exciting summer of play in Providence parks. The Partnership is seeking energetic summer PlayCorps Interns to facilitate and support creative and rewarding play experiences for Providence youth.
