The Ten Mile River Greenway follows the winding course for 2.5 miles along the James Turner Reservoir (Ten Mile River). Though short, the trail is quite scenic and runs between the Kimberly Ann Rock ball fields in East Providence and the north end of Slater Memorial Park in Pawtucket (to Armistice Blvd.). In the future an extension may continue north of Armistice Boulevard another mile to the playing fields along Daggett Avenue in Ten Mile River Park.
In Slater Park you'll find the Loof Carousel, built in 1894.
