PROVIDENCE – A demonstration of City Walk will be held on Saturday, to give residents and visitors an idea of what the 2.4-mile urban trail will look like once it’s completed.

The walk will connect several neighborhoods of Providence, through public art, wayfinding, signs and landscaping.

The city has secured $2.3 million to design and build the initial phases in 2019, along Clifford Street downtown and Pine, Friendship and Broad streets in South Providence.

For the demonstration on Saturday, community feedback will be solicited so changes can be made a part of the final design, according to city representatives.
