Preserving the People’s Park

A walking tour of the Japanese and Victorian Rose Gardens at Roger Williams Park

Open to the public since 1871, Roger Williams Park was intended to serve as a restorative escape for those living and working in increasingly urban Providence from the very beginning. Today, the park’s 435 beautiful acres include expansive manicured grounds, public gardens, walking paths, and several historic buildings in full use for public enjoyment. Stoll the park with a knowledgeable guide to learn more about its origins as part of the Urban Parks Movement and the efforts required to maintain this important community resource today.
