Waterplace Park

A post on the paddling.net message board got me thinking about one of the nicest urban paddles around - Waterplace Park in Providence.   The Moshassuck and Woonasquatucket Rivers converge in Providence to form the Providence River which then flows into Narragansett Bay. Up until the mid-90’s, these rivers were literally paved over. With the construction of Waterplace Park , the city has an entirely different feel, and the big event in town is Waterfire.  It cost millions to do, but it sure is nice. 


Heading up to the Deerfield River today to do a joint RICKA Flatwater/Whitewater trip below the Zoar Gap.  Release doesn't start until 12:00, which means that we won't get on the water until 2:00.  Its going to be a looooong day.
