Annual Bay Shore Clean Up


The Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse, along with members of the Riverside Renaissance Movement, and staff from the East Providence Water Pollution Plant will gather on Saturday, April 22 at 10:00 A.M. to clean up the shore line at the Crescent Beach area below Rose Larisa Park in Riverside. Bags and gloves will be provided by the city and the trash will be picked up by the state the following week.

The Friends have worked for many years along with the staff of the Pollution Plant in cleaning up the shore line in the rear of the plant and a few members of Riverside Renaissance joined them last year. This will be the first year that all three groups will join together to help improve the Riverside shoreline. The public is invited to join us in this community effort.

Limited parking will be available along Beach Road and plenty of parking will be available in the parking lots at the Carousel and Rose Larisa Park. Water and snacks will be available also.

Let’s hope the weather will be with us for this event. The tide will be low so that will be helpful for the purpose of cleaning the beach area. Sunday April 23 at 10:00 A.M. will be the rain date.
