Take It Outside – a statewide initiative to promote and support businesses taking their work outdoors
Governor Raimondo's "Take It Outside" initiative aims to help businesses and organizations move activities outside that would normally be held inside, such as meetings, classes, exams, workshops or other similar activities. State parks throughout Rhode Island have several locations which may be suitable for these purposes. Some locations may require a reservation fee and a certificate of insurance.
Depending on the desired location, size and complexity of your planned activity, RI State Parks may require you to obtain a special park use permit that may include a reservation fee and a certificate of insurance. If issued, the permit will include terms and conditions that protect park resources while allowing you to enjoy the park without interfering with other park visitors.
If your business or organization is interested in hosting an activity at a state park, please contact us so we can assist you. RI Parks Headquarters will be in touch within two business days to let you know if we can approve your request, and any expenses that may be associated with your event.Submit A Reservation Request
