Alerts & Conditions


The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and is using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis.

Based on guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and local public health authorities, access to the park is as follows:

  • The Park grounds are open to the public.
  • The Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI is open for basic visitor services at this time. Visitor services are offered Wednesday - Saturday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
  • Tours of Slater Mill are offered at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
  • Restroom facilities are open at the Slater Mill.

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders from the Rhode Island Department of Health, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
