Blackstone River Bikeway Dedication
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation is planning a dedication ceremony for Monday, April 28 at 10 a.m. for the next segment of the Blackstone River Bikeway. This 1-mile piece begins at the former Lonsdale Drive-In and connects to Valley Falls Heritage Park near Cumberland Town Hall. A unique feature of the path is a 540-foot long boardwalk that allows the path to pass through the Lonsdale Marsh.
Attendees will be asked to meet at the old Drive-In site and then the group will walk together to the dedication site at the start of the boardwalk area. Those coming by car but wishing to bike to the event should consider parking in other parking lots and cycling to the Drive-In as parking is quite limited there. The primary parking lot near the Pratt Dam has room for plenty of cars.
