Fodor's Review

Within the stately grounds of this park along Ten Mile River are picnic tables, tennis courts, playground, a dog park, and a river walk. The park's Looff Carousel, built by Charles I.D. Looff in 1894, has 39 horses, three dogs, a lion, a camel, a giraffe, and two chariots that are the earliest examples of the Danish immigrant's work. Rides are only 25¢. The Pawtucket chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution gives tours by appointment of the park's Daggett

House, which dates to 1685.

Bargain Hunters: Bring the Kids

The carousel ride is 25 cents and lasts 4 minutes. At this price, be a sport and let them ride two or three times. The horses are stationary, but the ride is fast. The horses are very beautiful, with real "hair" tails, and are made of wood. The popcorn is only 50 cents. For adults, there is a small but worthwhile watercolor art museum on the grounds.
