waterfront greenway that creates an "emerald necklace" stretching
from the Woonasquatucket Greenway, through Olneyville, Waterplace Park,
and India Point Park, to East Providence, and extending up the Seekonk
River to Pawtucket.
- Burial of the
overhead power lines that undermine the Parkıs natural beauty and
historical significance, and detract from the waterfront, the cityıs

other large developments set back from the waterfront, located north
of 195, to allow uninterrupted access to the shoreline for the public
and wide vistas of the Bay visible by all.
- A maritime
transportation center at Foxıs Point
where passengers from ferries, steamships, the historic Sloop Providence,
and other tall ships can disembark a short walk from the Heritage Harbor
Museum and downtown.
- A cycling center
at India Point Park where three major routes converge: the East
Bay Bike Path, the Blackstone Bike Path from Worcester, and the Trestle
Trail Bike Path from the Connecticut border.
- More public
access to the water by boat ramps and continuous shoreline walkways.
