*Blackstone Park Conservancy, Saturday, 1:30pm to 3pm, Parkside Road at East Orchard.

We celebrate Earth Day with a spring renewal in our Blackstone Park. Meet us at the Parkside entrance to Blackstone Park to spread mulch, fix fencing and signage, and repair trails. We supply tools, materials, and light refreshments.

This sign (with scenic ruins in background) is at Riverside Park, a restored riparian gem very near Olneyville Square. You can hear the traffic in the distance. Great bird watching: the great blue heron, the great white egret, and the marsh wren are frequent visitors. Informational plaques explain what you can expect to see in and around the river, the waterfall, and the fish ladder. And the bike path runs through it.
