The smallest town in the smallest state, North Providence, was first settled in 1636. Comprised of ten villages offering are a mix of rural and suburban areas. North Providence is noted for its lively annual events – Fishing Derby, Memorial Day Parade, 4th of July Fireworks, Pumpkins in the Park, Red Nose Day, and the Christmas Tree Lighting.
The town completed its new Public Safety Complex in 2019 and is home to the only Class 1 Fire Dept. in the state. North Providence is bisected by its main thoroughfare, Mineral Spring Avenue, where you’ll find a plethora of conveniences from bakeries, grocery stores, gas stations, home improvement stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. A few of the coffee shops and restaurants you’ll find in town are the legendary Twin’s Pizza which has been a dining hot spot for over 50 years, Pauly Penta’s Italian Deli serving up daily fresh on-site prepared deli and specialty items for almost 25 years, and Providence Bagel where you can get a famous nitro-cold brew to go with your fresh baked bagel. In the summer, award winning Cool Licks Creamery is a must stop for all things ice cream including non-dairy Dole Whip and even a special ice cream treat for your beloved furry friends.
The town has a few large recreational parks: Captain Stephen Olney Park and Governor John Notte Memorial Park. Stephen Olney Park is small but very well kept with a short (under 1 mile) paved walk/trail as well as a playground, picnic tables, tennis courts, basketball court and softball field. Governor John Notte Memorial Park is larger and offers full recreational facilities, including tennis courts, picnic sites, a shaded playground, baseball field, parking, a paved walking path, and a freshwater beach with paddle boat rentals. Golf enthusiast will want to visit the Louisquisset Golf Club, where the residence-lined course is carved through rolling hills, natural wetlands and numerous oak trees. Although you are mere minutes from Providence, there’s plenty of green space, local shops and conveniences right in town.
