Full Corn Moonrise and Ridge Walk – Cancelled!
September 6, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Weather forecasts for heavy rain with thunderstorms have informed our decision to cancel the full moon walk. Please stay tuned as we will pick another full moon date later this year for a walk.
Neutaconkanut Hill Conservancy and the Providence Parks Department along with Rhode Island Land Trust Days and Blackstone Go! invite you to escape your work day routine for a guided walk capped by the full corn moonrise from the summit meadow. At 6:30 pm, meet to enjoy a short walk featuring the trees of Neutaconkanut. By 7:30 pm, we’ll be back at the meadow to watch for the full moon rising over Providence.
Dress for the day’s weather and bring a flashlight. This walk is free, but we suggest a $5 per family donation to help support the work of the Conservancy. No advance reservations required. Suitable for ages 5 and up. Dogs on leash are welcome. Insect repellant is also recommended year round as a precaution against ticks which carry Lyme Disease.
You may choose to skip the walk. If so, plan to meet us at the summit meadow around 7:30 pm. Any cancellations will be noted on the Neutaconkanut Facebook page.

The Neutaconkanut Hill park ballfield is located at 120 Killingly St, Providence. We’ll start our walk at the Neutaconkanut Hill Conservancy kiosk behind the ballfield. From the east and south: From I-95 in Providence, take US-6W/RI-10W exit. From the north: From I-95 in Providence, take Exit 22B for US-6W/RI-10W. Merge onto US-6W. Get off at the Killingly St. Exit. Take a left at exit onto Killingly St. Continue to drive straight at the Hartford Ave. intersection light, keeping on Killingly St. At stop sign (the ball park will be straight ahead) turn left, staying on Killingly St and then turn right into the parking lot for the ballfield. Additional parking can be found in the Recreation Center parking lot at 675 Plainfield St. Both lots offer ample free parking.
