Ten Mile River Greenway Description

The Ten Mile River Greenway follows the winding course for 3 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 playing fields of Ten Mile River Park in Pawtucket (to Dagget Ave.). 

In Slater Park you'll find the Loof Carousel, built in 1894.

Parking and Trail Access

To get to Ten Mile River Park, take I-95 North to Exit 29 (Cottage Street). Take Central Avenue to Daggett Avenue. Turn left on Cottage Street, then bear right to Central Ave. Turn right on Dagget Avenue and left at the baseball field to enter the parking lot.

To get to Slater Park in Pawtucket, take I-95 North to Exit 28 (School Street) and turn right. Turn left onto Pond Street and go to the end (McCoy Stadium will be straight ahead). Turn right on Columbus Avenue and right on Newport Avenue (Route 1A) then left into the park's main entrance. Bear right at the fork and follow the one-way road to parking lots close to the greenway.

To get to Kimberly Ann Rock Athletic Fields in East Providence, take I-195 East to Exit 4 to Taunton Avenue (Route 44). Take Taunton for about 2 miles; it becomes Waterman Avenue. Cross South Broadway then bear left onto Hall Street and bear right onto Taunton Avenue. Continue to the intersection with Pawtucket Avenue and turn left (Route 114). At the intersection with Newman/Ferris Avenue, bear right onto Ferris; the sign for the Ten Mile River Greenway parking is about 1 mile on the right.

Ten Mile River Greenway Reviews

I like this trail for running after work, sometimes it's annoying to have to dodge people on the wrong side or slow walkers that spread themselves across the path in groups and then seem amazed that you get annoyed having to go around them. Also lots of kids blocking the way on bikes and scooters. Pretty views and some challenging hills make for a good run!

My 9 y/o son and I began in Pawtucket. It was a nice easy ride.

Your only road crossing is about 1 mile in. There is a simple dam to view and nice pond to pause at with a bench, if necessary.

My son and I managed to find a nice little food stop about a 1/2 mile from the end of the trail in Rumford, RI. Ride out of the baseball park down Ferris Ave. Cross over Bishop Ave (there is a marked crossing), then turn right onto Newman Ave. Just past the Post Office & across from the East Providence Fire Station #3 is a lovely mill bldg. It has 3 eateries. Seven Stars Bakery, Avenue N/American Kitchen. There is outdoor/shaded seating.

It was lovely & a nice break during our ride, prior to heading back to our starting point.

This path is now 3 miles in length, as the second leg,by crossing Armistice Blvd, is now open. Although very scenic, and 85% shaded,with its many curves and slight inclines,is,in my opinion more conducive to walkers and casual riders. There are two simple rules, Walk on Left,Ride on Right.For whatever reason here,most people do not adhere to them, in stark contrast to the East Bay Bike Path for example.If you going at a good clip,you never know what you will find when you round a blind bend,and there are many.Lot's of kids on push scooters or training wheels who just aren't paying attention. There are also a lot of folks walking their dogs,with a good amount not leashed, and others on long retractable leashes that have run toward and after me.Another common annoyance, is people either walking or riding, or a combination of both, taking up the whole width of the path.While most will move when they see you, others just won't budge. It's very frustrating.This path is very convenient for me in terms of location, but each time I ride it, and I've tried various times from early AM to dusk, I just get more frustrated and say "never again"....To be fair however, it is what is is. It is very beautiful, open to the public, and definitely not a training facility. However, a little common sense and courtesy would certainly make for a more enjoyable ride....For the riders looking to comfortably go at more than !) MPH, no kidding,I would recommend going to the East Bay Bike Path on Vet's Parkway in East Providence. Although windy at times, it's pretty much a straight shot with courteous users.

This is an underused little gem. I like it especially in the fall and winter. The fall foliage along the river and reservoir can be spectacular. It is a great way to end cold winter rides. I will get on at Slater Park after riding a longer loop. The pedestrians and swoopy trail force you to slow down and enjoy the ride and view.

We rode this trail a couple of times, we really like it. It goes along a waterway, nice paved trail. There must have been a hundred swans in the water as you looked over the water, and t he last time we were there was this spring. we saw several big turtles coming up from the water. Loved it can't wait to go again !!
