Mayor wrong to dismiss Parks Superintendent.

Abstract

"One of the major achievements in the city of Providence over the past five years has been a vastly improved parks system. From the recently refurbished Hopkins Square in the North End to the newly constructed Market Square near the downtown, the restoration of open spaces in the city has been a distinct contribution to the urban environment. And nowhere are these improvements more manifest than in the 430 acres comprising Roger Williams Park, one of the principal city assets that is enjoyed by both resident and non-resident alike."
