Riverside, RI Parks & Playgrounds Tour

Sabin's Point Park Riverside, RI

This is a continuation of my Riverside, RI blog.  I thought it would be nice to "spotlight" the neighborhoods in the town in which I live.  My last entry talked about the 4 neighborhoods in Riverside, RI.  Now, I'm drilling down into the local parks and playgrounds in those neighborhoods. Enjoy your tour!


Sabin Point Park

This 4.0 acre park juts out into beautiful Narraganset Bay. The park includes a playground, basketball courts, pavilion, fishing pier, picnic tables and new concrete walking paths.  This park is part of the Riverside neighborhood.  Now, who wouldn't want to spend time at a beautiful park along the bay.

Rose Larisa Memorial Park

This 10.0 acre park is situated between the historic Looff Carousel and beautiful Narraganset Bay. The park includes a walking trail, picnic tables, and benches with scenic bay views. The music amphlitheater is home of the East Providence Recreation Department's summer concert series. There is beach access from 2 sets of stairs.  Across the street is the Looff Carousel, and the Blount Clam Shack.  On the weekends this place is filled with people enjoying the views of the bay, riding the carousel and partaking of some clam chowder & clam cakes.  On Saturday's in the summer you can enjoy a antique car show & music in the parking lot.  This is the place to be spring, summer & fall.  Face painting will take place every weekend in September.

Vintner Avenue Playground

This neighborhood park includes a playground (5-12 yr. olds), park shelter and basketball court. The facility is next to the East Bay Bicycle Trail.  You can walk the bike path to Haines Park & Marina in Barrington.

Grassy Plain Park

  This 9.5 acre park is nestled in a wooded area of the Kent Corner neighborhood of Riverside.  If you didn't live in this area you would never know a neighborhood park exists here.  Once you park and walk past the wooded area, the park opens up to a huge expanse of fields, open spaces and a playground.

I hope you have enjoyed your tour of the parks and playgrounds of Riverside, RI.  As a life long resident, and local Realtor I have visited all these parks, and played on some of these playgrounds myself.  I can't think of a better place to take my grandson to.   Or go on your own,  bring a book and enjoy the late summer early fall weather at any of these spectacular treasures of Riverside, RI.  Stay tuned for my next blog of the East Providence parks & playgrounds.  Of course, if you would like more information on Riverside, or any other towns in Rhode Island I'd be happy to assist you.  You can always visit my website or contact me.

nothing like a recommendation from a home town girl.  And I'm totally jealous too... I'm in that in between... kids are to old to play and too young to make me a grandma yet and I love the park and playgrounds.  (wonder if one of my friends will let me babysit one of their grand children?)

If you were closer I'd let you play grandma with my 4 yr old Corbin.
