WHAT WE'VE DONE SO
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
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.
We have led campaigns
- 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.
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.
