Waterplace park is host to live music which a local radio station backs throughout the summer months. Alternative bands abound and there is plenty to do after the show ends. WPP also host the Shaksperian festival put on by Providence's Trinity Rep Company. Then there is Waterfire which is a must see. WPP has loads of clasic downtown scenery, wonderful restaurants, shopping and it is a great place to take your date. The only negative which I would say is that if someone is from out of tow, they may have trouble finding good parking.
It is clean and I would recomend it to anyone visiting the city.
Pros: Great Date Place, Scenery, Events
Cons: Poor Parking, lacking security
