Brandon’s Beach Playground Grand Opening!

The Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy invites the public to join them as they celebrate the grand opening of Brandon’s Beach at Burnside Park! The ribbon cutting is scheduled for 11:30 AM on Thursday, August 17th in the new playground within Greater Kennedy Plaza, and will be followed by an Ocean State themed party until 1 PM. Children of all ages are welcome to attend for face painting, art making, food trucks, and of course, exploring the new equipment!

The playground is dedicated to the memory of Brandon Goldner, and is made possible by the generosity of his family and friends. Read more about the design of the destination playspace here.
