Frequently Asked Questions
- What does outdoor recreation include?
We define outdoor recreation very broadly. It includes all the ways Rhode Islanders recreate outside: everything from playing organized sports, going to the beach, walking, paddling, sailing, fishing, and hunting – and all the infrastructure and resources that people use for these activities – local playgrounds and rec centers, state parks and beaches, boat ramps, fishing piers, walking trails, and more!
- How can I get involved?
We are looking for as much public involvement as possible to ensure all voices are heard. We want to know your thoughts about outdoor recreation in RI! Use this website to find out about in-person meetings for public comment. We also have a comment tool on this site and an interactive map where you can let us know where things are working and where they need improvement. And keep a look-out for a public survey, currently in development, which will be linked to on this website.
- How does Rhode Island's SCORP impact me?
The SCORP will outline funding priorities for outdoor recreation investment over the next 5 years. Your favorite beach, park, walking trail, or boat ramp is part of this plan! Your feedback about your recreational needs are invaluable to us as we plan for improvements and additions to our recreational infrastructure.
