I am a fairly new home owner in the neighborhood. My family and I were apprehensive about moving to Providence. While looking at home we considered many neighborhoods but fell in love with Washington Park. I’ve come to love the suburban feel while being minutes from downtown.

I love living in Washington Park. Close to the park and zoo. Easy commute into Downtown, and the train station.
We don't have a very strong sense of community here. There are people who have lived in the neighborhood since they were children, so they still talk to each other, but that's about it. The neighborhood is very pet friendly. Almost everyone has a pet.
