Urban Coastal Greenway – Providence/Cranston

This walk is actually two separate paths on adjacent properties. One is on the Save The Bay property and the other is on Johnson and Wales property at the south end of Fields Point. Starting from the parking lot at the Save The Bay building I crossed a wooden bridge to the stone path which runs along the extreme northern part of Narragansett Bay (technically the Providence River at this location). At the boathouse I followed the path to the right of the building to the entrance road. Leaving the Save The Bay property there is a stone parking area to the left and the beginning of the second path. I followed this path to the end as it crosses into Cranston and then retraced my steps back to the car. A short walk indeed with great views of the upper bay. From this area you can see Sabins Point, Conimicut Point, and Pawtuxet. You can also see the Pomham Rocks lighthouse as well the Conimicut Light all to the south and over the water. To the north you can see the downtown Providence skyline as well as the massive wind turbines at the Port of Providence. If you get a chance, check out the floor in the lobby of the Save The Bay Center. It is a map of the entire bay and surrounding area.
