Launched in 2020, the WRWC’s Summer Community Paddle series shares the joy of a paddle on the Woonasquatucket River with 300+ central Providence riverfront residents. Our experienced paddle guides offer 10-15 minute paddle tours of the stretch of river that runs through Riverside Park. These paddle experiences are not for experienced paddlers–check out our longer paddle trips if you want more!

Our guided paddles transform participants’ perspectives, offering a first-time experience on the Woonasquatucket that strengthens connections to the river and the Greenway and engages the next generation of environmental stewards and leaders. Spanish- and English-speaking staff and volunteers make the paddle series accessible to all participants.
