Neutaconkanut Hill Conservancy and the Providence Parks Department invite you to get outdoors with your family on Black Friday. Make the most of this holiday season by spending time outdoors with your loved ones. This walk will be a relaxed fitness walk suitable for ages 5 and up - less talking, more walking and, of course, scenic views to savor the season.
Supported by the RI Land Trust Council as part of the #OptOutside program sponsored by REI which is closing their doors again Black Friday to encourage us all to get outdoors, this walk is your way to demonstrate what matters the most to you!
Dress for the day's weather - be sure to wear comfortable walking or hiking shoes. This walk is free, but we suggest a $5 per family donation to help support the work of the Conservancy. No advance reservations required. Suitable for ages 5 and up. Dogs on leash are welcome. Insect repellant is also recommended year round as a precaution against ticks which carry Lyme Disease. Any cancellations will be noted on the Neutaconkanut Facebook page.

Walk Volunteers Needed! Our Conservancy programs are offered to the community thanks to our dedicated volunteers. Please consider volunteering to assist us.
