I just read about this and wonder if anyone has seen this traveling fun bus. If you see it, please click comments below and tell us about it.
What I read is the fun bus will be filled with dozens of games and equipment for outdoor activities, such as roller blades, field and board games, and a 35-foot inflatable obstacle course. Recreation Department employees donning super hero costumes will also be on board ready to engage in fun with youth as the bus visits each of the city’s pools and water parks.
Schedule: (I am listing the whole schedule so you can see where the bus has been and where the bus is going). The fun bus will arrive at each Providence location at 10:30 am, Monday through Friday. Check our summer guide for details on pools + waterparks.

The handicapped accessible bus was donated by the Free Wheeler Association. The bus’s colorful exterior was painted by Straight Up Graphics and students from the TruSchool through a grant from the Providence After School Alliance (PASA). The Boys & Girls Club of Providence is providing two staff members to help supervise the Fun Bus activities.
