They have an indoor bathroom that *should* be open.

We are down to meet at Slater- it's nice and close.

Hi, I won't be able to make it on Monday because I have to sort out some registry /tax stuff to get my van registered. Tuesday is free though Sonja, if you are still planning to go to the park that day - I'd love to join you!

So let's do Slater on Tuesday? It should be a little cooler by then too I think.
Good to know about the bathrooms. The park was so packed it was probably hard to see them. I think it would be nice to meet at the playground and then maybe find a grassy spot to eat a snack/ lunch after playing.
Ooh, just checked the weather and it says 88 on tuesday!! Crazy heat wave!

Ariana, I will probably try and do Humboldt tomorrow around 10:30 before I have to pick Aidan up. I'm not sure though, I'll post in the morning in case you feel like meeting then too.

We are on for Tuesday at Slater park!
Yep...I was so ready for warmer weather...but not for full force summer! Goodness!

Shannon...Slater Park is HUGE with different areas (playground, little trails, petting "zoo", food/ice cream/bathrooms, etc) We have only gone twice but it's really nice and I look forward to going more often this year since I'm not pregnant anymore There are many trees and shade

I think we are going to hang out here tomorrow- this place is a wreck and it's driving me crazy!! Ignoring it isn't helping (neither is sitting at the computer)

We will be at Slater on Tuesday. The bathrooms are by the farm/food. In the back part of the park there are picnic grounds with lots of shade and a big grassy area that would be nice.

Shalonne, I did a quick google search and found this link:
http://www.socialweb.net/Places/2689.lasso
it's on Newport ave in Pawtucket but I don't know the street number. Your GPS might have POI (point of interest)s list and Slater might be one of them... I don't know.

Thanks! I will have to try that. My GPS is not very high quality - just a service I get from Verizon on my phone. I'm sure I'll find it eventually . I will leave early!

Slater park is a giant park with grass, woods, baseball fields, even the humane society is there so there is a big sign at the entrance. It's like Roger Williams park. If you come via 95 or downtown pawtucket/ mccoy stadium it is on the left. You enter the park and make your way for a minute or two and you'll see the playground and parking area. (Joanna, please correct me if these are wrong).
I am a super wimp in the heat so i don't know how long I'll last tomorrow.
I'm going to try and get there by 10 to avoid the hottest part of the day.
Next hot day we should all meet at Lincoln Woods. I wonder if the beach is open yet?

I drove by Lincoln Woods yesterday and the beach was open.

I'm hoping to be at the park by 9 since we have to leave so early...

Here is a link to the yahoo map. I couldn't find a street address either. When you enter the park via Newport Ave. go straight past the baseball fields, straight past the stop sign and you will see the playground, can't miss it.

Bring LOTS of water tomorrow!!

Well, I don't know what your meeting is about but - you always seem to be very well spoken and intelligent to me so I bet you'll do wonderfully.

Not sure if/when we'l make it today. There is a new boiler being installed(yay!) and I'll be here until he is done. He is already at work down there, so I'm thinking I might make it to the park by 11:30-12. Fingers crossed!
