Barrio Tours: Cranston St. / West End
Joann Ayuso, resident of the West End of Providence and Marta V. Martínez of RILA will take you on a personal tour of this Latino neighborhood. You will get to see the diversity of the neighborhood as we visit a local Hmong Temple, an Asian Market, Central American and Dominican bodegas and learn about one of the largest and most active African-American congregations in the city. The tour will end with a dinner or lunch at a local Latino eatery.
Meet at Dexter Park [Training Ground] on Parade Street and Dexter, 15 minutes prior to listed time. Ample street parking around the park. The tour runs approximately 1.5 hours with time to eat at the end. Wear comfortable shoes and bring $$ to pay for your meal.
