Built in 1895 and designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1987, the Charles I.D. Looff Carousel is one of the finest surviving carousels in the United States.
In order to expand the use of the carousel property, the East Providence Carousel Commission on behalf of the City of East Providence retained the Design Team services of The Gifford Design Group and Diane C. Soule and Associates to develop a program to strategically implement the Carousel Commission’s vision. Components of the Master Plan include a pavilion for weddings and birthday parties, a museum/gift shop, clam shack and trackless train.
With open space in short supply, this under-used site was selected to be transformed into an urban park for families in Central Falls.
Working with the vision of Mayor James Diossa, a nature-oriented park was created. A central water feature splash pad, along with timber site furnishings and lighting, performance stage, war memorial gathering space, movie viewing area and walking paths all came together to provide a multitude of recreation opportunities for the residents of Central Falls.
