Learn about early Roger Williams Park history and explore some of its landscape and venues – including spaces that are not usually accessible to the public, such as Betsey Williams Cottage – and engage in a lively discussion about the puzzle of urban parks today. Many parks, like Roger Williams Park, were created over a century ago. How do we care for these spaces today? How do we preserve the best of the past while meeting the needs of the future?
