On Saturday, May 15th, this orientation plaque will be installed south of the parking lot during a ceremony to launch the nature trails and their online guide.

This ongoing project is a collaboration of Friends of Salter Grove, the City of Warwick, and the RI Department of Environmental Management to create an outdoor classroom at Salter Grove for people of all ages to enjoy its natural history. It was funded by a generous grant from the Vivian J. Palmieri Charitable Trust.
Community volunteers organized by Save The Bay and informal volunteers committed to keeping Salter Grove clean joined forces on September 1st.
Two more cleanups are scheduled for 2020: Saturday, October 3 from 3 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, November 7 from 2 to 4 p.m. Please sign up here and come enjoy the wonderful views while helping! No walk-ins please—due to Covid regulations, only signed up volunteers will be accepted.

McCaffrey, Councilman Anthony Sinapi, Councilwoman Donna Travis, (Mayor), FoSG Coordinator Peter Becker, Rep. Joseph McNamara, and Councilman Rick Corley.
Lynn Salter McCauley was FoSG’s delightful special guest for this neighborhood celebration, providing a link to the park’s naming after her grandfather. The photo below is from a sign unveiling event in May 1967 with (L-to-R) Warren L. Salter (Lynn’s father), Olive Salter (Lynn’s grandmother), and RI Governor John Chafee.
The new playground got a real workout, with spillover to its ADA path.
After three and a half years of hard work with our partners at DEM, the City of Warwick, and private contractors, the new playground and repaired causeway have proven very popular successes. We deserve to celebrate with you, our supporters, and the kids deserve to try out the playground equipment!
On Saturday, October 26th, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., join us for a potluck neighborhood celebration. Cover band Salter’s Groove will be performing. These local musicians have always wanted to play in the park they are named after, and we are delighted that they are going to be providing the entertainment.
Donuts and cider will be available.
Please walk to the park if possible—parking will be very limited!
The rain date is Saturday November 2nd, 2019 from 2 to 4 pm.
