    Ah, have not been there in years. Went often as a child. Last time I was there my favorite part, the oriental gardens, were over grown with fragmites and other such. Will have to return, now.

    Nice shot. Looks like they're getting things cleaned up.

    It's a slow process. The oriental gardens are still not that great but some other parts are getting better. The bandstand has been renovated and there is a mini-waterfire (like downtown Providence) on the main lake. 3 water fountains have been added to the lake and there's still the famous carousel, now in much better shape. It's not the caliber of Roger Williams Park but still a nice place to visit on a spring or summer day.

    Hmmm...early morning.

    Shot doesn't convey that to me. Sky is too bright for that. Water is a bit burned-out too.


    Cheers!
