Providence Park Pavilion

ARO is designing a resilient and expressive Food & Beverage Pavilion for a new riverfront park between Downtown Providence and the Jewelry District. After 45 years of dividing the Providence River from the rest of the city, the relocation of the I-195 highway opened the possibility for economic growth and community in the new 195 District. Through architecture, food, and art, the Park Pavilion will strengthen community relationships, attract burgeoning businesses, and deepen the public’s appreciation for the new District as it continues to transform.
