Wi-Fi hotspots are currently being set up in the following locations to encourage Rhode Islanders to shift their work outside:
- COMING SOON — Blackstone Valley Visitors Center
Conveniently located off Route I-295 North in Lincoln, this location borders the state’s second-longest bikepath, the Blackstone River Bikeway. Its 18.2 miles of bikeway include 11.6 miles of continuous path from Cumberland to Woonsocket.
- COMING SOON — Fort Adams State Park, Newport
A landmark offering panoramic views of Newport Harbor and the East Passage of Narragansett Bay. Perhaps best known for hosting the iconic Newport Folk and Jazz Festivals, Fort Adams also is home to the historic Eisenhower House and Sail Newport.
- COMING SOON — Misquamicut State Beach, Westerly
Misquamicut State Beach, one of the state’s most popular beaches, has over a half mile of beach front and a large parking area. The WiFi spot will be located near the parking area and beach access point.
- COMING SOON — Fort Wetherill State Park, Jamestown
Nestled between Routes 146 and 123 in Lincoln, RI’s first state park is one of the Blackstone Valley’s great gems and only a short ride from Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, Cumberland, and Woonsocket. A big plus: Lincoln Woods is located on a RIPTA bus route. The WiFi spot is located at the boathouse along Olney Pond, surrounded by grassy areas with picnic tables.
- COMING SOON — Haines Memorial State Park, East Providence
Haines Memorial State Park is a waterfront park on the northeastern side of Narragansett Bay, with picnic tables and built-in fireplaces constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The WiFi spot will be located at the entrance to the state park, along Narragansett Avenue, adjacent to the East Bay Bike Path.
Let's Take It Outside
