Can Pawtucket be a destination?

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.
