Trails for bird enthusiasts. Open space that doubles as science “classrooms” for local students. Fields for athletic activities. Wetlands revegetated with native plants and a wildflower garden. These are but a few of the welcoming features of Providence, R.I.’s Mashapaug Pond Park—formerly the site of the Gorham Manufacturing Co.—a renowned silver manufacturer founded in the 19th century.

Textron owned Gorham for nearly 20 years, selling it in 1985. The new owners moved the operations, but after being the site of metal manufacturing operations for close to a century, residual environmental impacts to soil, groundwater and a portion of Mashapaug Pond remained, which Textron was responsible to address.

Working in tandem with state and city officials, school administrators, area residents and local nonprofit organizations, Textron developed and implemented a phased remediation plan that helped lead to the creation of Mashapaug Pond Park.

Stakeholders marked the end of the project with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. Reaction to this transformed site was overwhelmingly positive. Attendees used words like “awesome,” “amazing” and “wonderful” to describe the new park.

For its efforts in turning this land that was unsuitable for public use into a neighborhood gem, Providence Business News honored Textron with an Innovative Collaboration Award.

At Textron, corporate responsibility is at the heart of all we do. Recognition at a national and local level is a testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainable business practices, our employees’ well-being and healthy and thriving communities.
