Named for its mile-long face of veined granite quartz, Diamond Hill provides a number of recreation opportunities. The view from the top of Diamond Hill, formerly a small ski slope, is spectacular and there are a number of hiking trails to explore all over the park.
PARKING will be FREE and will be on-site. As you pull into the park, volunteer parking attendants will guide you to the proper areas... please be patient and follow their guidance! We need to be careful in regard to vehicle placement in order to optimize the number of vehicles we can accommodate while maintaining fire lanes and exit lanes. Please also pay attention to the posted one-way signage on site!
If someone in your party will have a difficult time walking from your parking spot, DROP THEM OFF at the top of the lot near the festival entrance and have them wait while you park your vehicle.
PLEASE CARPOOL IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!
Limited handicapped-accessible parking will be available as well as special spaces for artists, volunteers and vendors. Check with parking attendants upon arrival.
Diamond Hill Park is navigational for a wheelchair as there is a paved pathway that runs around the park; all stages are easily accessible (though on grassy areas) except one music stage which consists of some hilly terrain.
Blackstone River Theatre has arranged to have a 14-passenger SHUTTLE BUS making continuous loops around the festival parking lots (including the ballfield lots to the right) BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 1 PM and 6 PM. The shuttle will bring patrons from and to their cars if parked farther away or if a member of your party has trouble walking. LOOK FOR SIGNS WHERE SHUTTLE WILL STOP FOR PICKUPS!
If crowd size warrants it, the SHUTTLE will also make pickups at a satellite parking lot located at Mercymount School (35 Wrentham Road, Cumberland, RI, just two minutes from Diamond Hill Park.) LOOK FOR SIGNS WHERE / WHEN SHUTTLE WILL STOP FOR PICKUPS!
