Who would have though an old carousel could be so much fun! At only $1 per ride the carousel is inexpensice family fun. The caurosel and the building which houses it are works of art themselves. Even as an adult i really enjoy the carouses.

This is one of the older operating carousels in the nation! It has been refurbished! A great place for kids!

Always great to come back here. There's always something going on, music, kids playing, just always something. It's one of the most nostalgic feelings putting your little ones on a good old fashioned carousel.

a great place to take the kids. This is one of the oldest carousels in the country, and it is located close to a beautiful park with a water view. Food trucks offer refreshment. If you like lobster, the Blount lobster rolls are excellent and fairly inexpensive.Hot dogs and hamburgers for the kiddies are offered too.

We visited the antique carrousel and the park across the street on a beautiful late summer Saturday. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon outing with my partner and pup. Ample parking and seating to enjoy the pastry breakfast we purchased at a Federal Hill bakery in Providence earlier in the morning.

This carousel is beautiful. We need to make sure we take of these gems. I remember coming to Crescent Park as a kid and was always so jealous of all the kids that had "day" passes.

The best and steeped in so much local history. A joy to ride even today, catch the ring and tissue in the clown's open mouth as I did as a pre-teen!
