The Arkwright Riverwalk, founded on a former rail bed purchased from Penn Central Railroad, is located in Coventry, a rural central Rhode Island town that was built around textile mills. The one-mile trail includes a wooden boardwalk, but is primarily surfaced with dirt and follows the north branch the Pawtuxet River. Future plans include a connection to the Phenix-Harris Riverwalk
, just over a mile away.
A small parking area is available off Hill Street.
