Project Narrative:

Roosevelt Lake Recreational Path was a ground-breaking project for the Providence Parks Department that had several notable, sustainable goals.  One was removal of a one thousand linear foot boulevard to reduce impervious area and associated stormwater runoff.  A substantial rain garden was developed to capture all surface flow prior to reach the park’s headwater pond.
