Q: Where is the Bay Center located?

A: Our Bay Center is located at the far end of the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. Follow Allens Avenue south to the Providence/Cranston line, where Allens Avenue becomes Narragansett Blvd. Take a left onto Harborside Blvd. (look for the Johnson & Wales marquee at the Harborside Shell gas station). Follow Harborside Blvd. to the end and take a right onto Save The Bay Drive. The roadway will lead you directly to our facility.

Q: Are your grounds open to the public?  If so, when?  Can I picnic, fish, hunt, canoe, or kayak?

A: Save The Bay’s grounds are open to the public year-round from sunrise to sunset. Hunting is not allowed on our site, and presently we do not offer the public any boating/kayaking/docking services. Bonfires are strictly forbidden. Visitors are welcome to walk the grounds, picnic on the site, fish from our shoreline, and all are welcome to tour our facility if their visit coincides with our office hours (Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

Q: Can I pay my Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC) bill here and is STB affiliated with them?

A: Save The Bay is not affiliated with the Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC), but we are neighbors of NBC, which is located at One Service Road, Providence (home of Providence’s three wind turbines). Narragansett Bay Commission's mission is to maintain a leadership role in the protection and enhancement of water quality in Narragansett Bay and its tributaries by providing safe and reliable wastewater collection and treatment services to its customers at a reasonable cost.
