The largest natural fresh water lake in Providence, Mashapaug Pond also supplies water for the man-made lakes in popular Roger Williams Park. In 1996 TPL helped the city of Providence purchase two parcels of land and a building along Mashapaug Pond, which now houses environmental education programs and the city's first freshwater community boating program.
