The award-winning Jaycee Arboretum and Corridor include the welcoming esplanade filled with attractive flowers, mini-trees, seasonal plants and 72 species of shrubs. Features include communal monuments, manicured playing fields and historic artifacts that form the entrance to the beautiful state Senator Roch Riverwalk, a 1.3 mile trail with native vegetation, waterfowl and forest wildlife along the Pawtuxet River.

The Jaycees and volunteers manage these properties owned by the Town of West Warwick. The Jaycees coordinate a spring open space celebration called, Ecology Day & Peace Prayer Ceremony, usually on the first Saturday in May and on the commemoration for the 9/11, as well as other events, all open to the public such as an annual Arbor Day and Earth Day celebration and a community program called Corporate Cares Days.
