WHAT WE'VE DONE SO FAR


PARK IMPROVEMENTS

Our Capital Campaign and work with the city Parks Dept, state Transportation Dept, City Council, architects & artists has led since 2003 to the:

  • New Playground at Gano Street designed by Sara Bradford and FIPP
  • Mosaic Mural of maritime history of India Pt., designed by Mika Seeger & Peter Geisser, created by 500 citizens in community workshops
  • 14 New Picnic Tables maintained by FIPP
  • Bulletin Board designed by Sarah Kennedy & erected by FIPP members

ANNUAL CLEANUP

Held the Saturday of Earth Day weekend since April 2000. We mulch trees, remove graffiti, and plant trees, bushes & flowers, with the help of the Parks Dept, other neighborhood groups, and WBRU staff.

PUBLIC ADVOCACY

We have led campaigns to:

  • bury the power lines. We have won the support of 35 city and state organizations and helped raise $14.5 million to bury the waterfront wires.
  • save 40 trees threatened by the 195 relocation project, including the large oak at the East Street entrance to the new pedestrian bridge.
  • expand waterfront public space at the Shooters site and connect waterfront public spaces in an emerald necklace from Blackstone Park to Woonasquatucket Greenway
  • build a public boat ramp on the Seekonk at East Transit Street, coming soon, with help from the Parks Dept, CRMC, and Dept. of Environmental Management
  • stop the parking garage Brown proposed for 700 cars on the waterfront.

9/08

FIPP’s mission is to promote, improve, and defend the Park, expand public uses of the waterfront, and connect the Park to other public spaces in an emerald necklace from the Seekonk to the Woonasquatucket Rivers. Because trees can’t vote, we advocate on the Park's behalf.

Expand the Green, Save our Shoreline
