About the Middlebridge Education and Activity Center
The Middlebridge Education and Activity Center is located at 95 Middlebridge Road in Narragansett, the former Eddy property recently purchased by the Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust for open space and recreation. The center is a joint effort of the Narrow River Preservation Association and Narrow River Land Trust, in cooperation with the Town of Narragansett Department of Parks and Recreation.
NRPA and the Narrow Liver Land Trust share common interests to preserve, protect, and restore the environment and the quality of life for all communities within the Narrow River Estuary and Watershed. As stewards of the watershed, education has always been a primary focus. With the recent acquisition of the Middlebridge Property by the Narragansett Land Conservancy Trust, we foresee a tremendous opportunity for the property to serve as a center for educational programs and family activities to increase awareness of the unique cultural and natural history as well as the challenges facing the Watershed.
