I lived here for over 20 years now. My first year here as a fourth-grader was a memorable year for me as I formed friendships and had a great relationship with my teacher who I still think of today. The education I received in North Providence was great. I moved away for college and recently moved back. The culture here in North Providence is lacking, and health food establishments are non-existent. Overall, however, this town is safe and a great place to raise a family!

North Providence is not just a town, it's a home. This cute and cozy town is filled with friendly people and has everything you need close by. Such as my morning coffee from dunkin' that's about on every other street!
North Providence is a beautiful town with alot of great people. Everything is close and convenient. The little local stores are a great place to shop, the people are helpful and mostly the prices are fair. The parks are clean and safe, the police constantly patrol them which I love having small children. Notte Park is always having something going on in the park for family fun. Including the memorial day parade, red nose day, fourth of July celebration with fireworks, pumpkin spectacular, and free pictures with Santa. It is a nice place to live.
