The Bay Center
The Bay Center, dedicated on June 2, 2005, is an award-winning building with a mission. We designed and built this green building to serve our community as a living classroom and center for our marine science educational programs, administrative offices and community meeting space. The trails on our grounds are part of the Providence Urban Greenway Trail, inviting community members to enjoy this rare and beautiful urban access point to the Bay from sunup to sundown. The building itself represents Save The Bay’s approach to brownfields redevelopment and environmentally-friendly shoreline development.
The 15,042 sq. ft. building is located on a 6.07-acre site donated to Save The Bay by Johnson & Wales University. It features two classrooms, community meeting rooms, an art gallery, administrative offices, and an adjacent boathouse with a fixed pier and dock.
The Prince Charitable Trusts dock features a T-wharf capable of housing our fleet of education and restoration vessels. The wharf and dock have become the hub for upper Bay educational programming. Using the dock, children can collect and study upper Bay critters or test water quality in a matter of minutes, direct from habitat to the Bay Center classroom.
