Why not? We need to make better use of thr rivers that we have here. I love the new greenway along the 10 mile River that can be accessed on Armistce Blvd near the Pawtucket Country Club. I am always amazed by how populated Slater Park is by families enjoying their picnics and various events. I am also impressed by the beauty of the new bridge spanning the Blackstone near the Division Street Bridge. i would like to see the development of a river walk with places to sit and a coffee or tea house along the bank that leads from the new bridge back towards City Hall.
The prime piece of real estate is from Apex and across Division to the new piers on the river. How could it be to develop the China connection and builed a genuine Chines Garden in that area.
It seems to me that eventually the plan to devekop tje whole of the Bkackstone Valley as a national park from Pawtucket to Worcestor will move forward. So why not have other attractions in place to stimulate tourism and to help create more experiences for people?.
Look at what was created in Lowell Mass. Who will be our Paul Tsongas--who is the political figure with the courage and the clout to make this happen.
I wonder if it could be Donald Grebien. Someone should step up and see that Pawtucket is in a place to move ahead.
