About this Location

Access Central Pond from Newman Avenue, RI-152, in East Providence. The best put-in is at the east end of the road. This is an unimproved access site. To explore Central Pond, put in on the north side of the road.

Central Pond originally provided hydropower to the Central Mill. You can still see the old dam and foundations at the west end of the pond, extending in an arc from Newman Avenue. Central Pond is the border of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
